Guidance for Individuals Vaccinated Outside of Ontario/Canada

If you are a resident of Ontario and you were vaccinated in another province or country, keep your vaccine receipt as you may need to show it to employers or educational insitutions if you need to provide proof. 

You can also show your vaccine receipt when you go to your health care provider or pharmacist for another dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

If you fall under the following two categories, your previous doses can be added to the provincial vaccine database (COVAXon) by Middlesex-London Health Unit staff, using the online portal link: 

  • A child under the age of 5 years old
  • An individual with a dose recorded that was administered in the last six months

All other doses will not be recorded into the provincial vaccine database at this time. Employers, educational institutions, health care providers and pharmacists can take your original vaccine receipt or record as proof of doses previously administered.

How to submit eligible doses to the provincial database:

For doses that are eligible to be uploaded into the provincial database, please note the following instructions and information: 

  • It may take up to 21 days to process submissions
  • 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 another piece of ID (birth certificate, driver's license, employee ID, Indian Status Card or Indigenous Membership Card, passport, or out of province health card). Individuals with a valid Ontario Health Card can download their proof of vaccination following their vaccine submission and approval at
  • Individuals without an Ontario Health Card can obtain a client ID and link to download their proof of vaccination by calling 519-663-5317 (Monday to Friday between 8:30AM and 4:30PM).
  • You will need to take a picture of the record to upload. Please make sure it is clear and includes the entire record.

If you are unable to submit proof of vaccination electronically:

If you are unable to submit electronically, please call 519-663-5317 for further direction.

  • The number of doses that are currently recommended for you or members of your family will differ, depending on the date of the last dose given and other eligibility factors.
  • If you are unsure if your vaccine series is valid in Ontario, or if you require more doses now, please contact the Health Unit at 519-663-5317.
