Is Ontario going to implement a vaccination passport?
The Quebec government will put into place a vaccination passport that will allow access to certain places. However, it seems that Ontario does not plan to implement vaccine passports.
A spokesperson for the Minister of Health told CBC News it’s not true that Ontario is moving toward a system similar to Quebec’s. The news mentioned that Ontario has resisted an approach with Premier Doug Ford previously saying he doesn’t want a “split society.”
Currently, Ontarians have the option of printing out their electronic vaccination receipt. But critics also said that prints are easier to fake.
COVID-19 Pandemic Situation in Canada
As of August 19, provinces and territories have administered over 52 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines. The latest data indicates that 83% of people aged 12 years or older have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Also, 74% are now fully vaccinated.
About the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in Canada
- Nationally, the highly contagious Delta Variant of Concern (VOC), accounts for the majority of recently reported cases.
- Professionals associate this variant with increased severity and may reduce the effectiveness of vaccines.
- Also, most reported cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are occurring among unvaccinated people.
- Virus spread in areas with low vaccination coverage presents an ongoing risk for emergence of and replacement by new VOCs, including the risk of VOCs with the ability to evade vaccine protection.
