Quebec to implement vaccination passport system

Quebec to implement vaccination passport system
/ Emilie Nadeau

On Thursday afternoon, Premier François Legault announced that Quebec will be moving forward in introducing a vaccination passport system in the province.

With risks of COVID-19 case numbers and hospitalizations rising, Legault shared that the decision should avoid the widespread closures that the province has previously seen throughout the course of the pandemic. While details have yet to be announced, he shared that “people who made the effort to get their two doses should be able to live a somewhat normal life."

According to CBC, “Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was at the Montreal news conference with Legault to announce federal funding for Quebec day care services, says he fully supports Quebec's decision, and is looking to implement vaccine passports in other interested provinces to facilitate international travel.”

Quebec will be the next in line to introduce vaccination passports to its populations, following France, Italy, and (soon to be added) New York.
