Guidance for Individuals Vaccinated Outside of Ontario/Canada

If you are a resident of Ontario and received a dose or complete series of the COVID-19 vaccine out of Province or Canada, the province of Ontario requires you to report this information to your local Public Health Unit, to assist with either completing your vaccination series and/or validating your vaccination record in the Provincial COVID-19 reporting system (COVAXon).


Submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination received out of Ontario or Canada

All doses received outside of Ontario or Canada can now be submitted electronically. To submit your proof of COVID-19 vaccination, please click the link below.

Submit Online →

Please Note: It may take up to 5 business days to process an out-of-Ontario or out-of-Canada COVID-19 vaccine submission.

NOTE: The Ontario COVID vaccine documentation system (COVAXon) is not currently connected to the ArriveCAN application or any other travel-related system and does not replace the need to retain original documentation of COVID vaccine for travel-related purposes.

An Ontario Health Card is not required to submit proof of “out of province” doses. If you do not have an Ontario Health Card, you will be prompted to upload a piece of ID (birth certificate, driver's license, employee ID, Indian Status Card or Indigenous Membership Card, passport, or out of province health card). Persons with valid Ontario Health card will be able to access covid19.ontariohealth.ca to download proof of vaccination following their vaccine submission and approval.


How to submit out-of-province or out-of-country COVID-19 vaccination records to the Middlesex-London Health Unit

Please follow the instructions below for more information on how to submit out-of-Province or out-of-Country COVID-19 vaccination records to the Middlesex-London Health Unit.

If you received one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine outside of Ontario or Canada

If you only received one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, please walk-in or book your second dose appointment at one of the Health Unit’s COVID-19 vaccination clinics:

To book an appointment

Book online at www.covidvaccinelm.ca 
(NOTE: the interval in which you can book your second dose appointment will follow the most recent Ontario guidelines)

  • Enter Gate #1, Book/re-book an appointment, then select the option "Book or re-book a second dose." You will need to confirm which vaccine you received as your first dose.
  • Call 226-289-3560 (9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Sunday)

You can also attend any walk-in pop-up vaccination clinic or mass vaccination clinic without an appointment.  See the complete schedule of walk-in pop-up vaccination clinics.  For hours of operations at the mass vaccination clinics, visit here

NOTE: If you are planning to complete your vaccine series at another location (pharmacy, school health services, primary care) please follow the steps below to submit your first dose of vaccine given out of Province/Country electronically or in person before planning to receive a second dose (see below for details)

Before your appointment

All doses received outside of Ontario or outside of the Country can now be submitted electronically

Your first dose must be submitted at least 5 business days before your second dose appointment.

NOTE: your first dose vaccine documentation can also be assessed and entered into the Ontario COVID-19 vaccine documentation system at your appointment.

 On the day of your appointment:

  • Bring your first dose vaccine documentation that indicates your name, as well as the date, place and type of vaccine you received, while outside of Ontario/Canada.
  • Your first dose vaccine documentation will be assessed to determine if you are eligible for a second dose based on the type of vaccine you received and the date you received your first dose.
  • If your first dose was a vaccine that is not currently authorized by Health Canada, you will be advised to consider re-vaccination (i.e. starting the vaccination series over again with a vaccine currently approved by Health Canada). Learn more here: COVID-19 vaccines authorized for use by Health Canada.

If you received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine outside of Ontario or Canada

If you received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, you can submit your proof of vaccine electronically.

If you cannot submit electronically, bring proof of your vaccination series along with identification that has your name and date of birth to the Western Fair District Agriplex from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Thursday to Monday (closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays). 

Note: In Ontario, an individual is considered fully vaccinated if they have received:

  • The full series of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized by Health Canada, or any combination of such vaccines, or;
  • One or two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine not authorized by Health Canada, followed by one dose of a COVID-19 mRNA vaccine authorized by Health Canada, or;
  • Three doses of a COVID-19 vaccine not authorized by Health Canada and the final dose was received at least 14 days ago.

If you received a COVID-19 vaccine but do not have documentation or are unsure which vaccine you received

If you do not know which vaccine product you received outside of Ontario or Canada, or you do not have proof of immunization, try to contact the out of Province/Country clinic or location where you received your first dose or vaccine series.

If you are still unable to determine which COVID-19 vaccine you received, you can walk-in or book an appointment at one of the Health Unit’s COVID-19 vaccination clinics to begin a new vaccination series in Ontario:

  • Book online at www.covidvaccinelm.ca
    Enter Gate #1: Book/re-book an appointment, then select the option "Book a first dose."
  • Call 226-289-3560 (9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Sunday)

You can also attend any walk-in pop-up vaccination clinic or mass vaccination clinic without an appointment. See the complete schedule of walk-in pop-up vaccination clinics. For hours of operations at the mass vaccination clinics, visit here.

Please note: If you know the date you received your last COVID-19 vaccine, you should wait at least 28 days after that date before starting a new series in the Middlesex-London region.
