UPDATE OCT 18: Grassroots Tool lets you import the new, enhanced Ontario vaccine certificate to your Apple Wallet or a Photo Card
- All Ontarians must download their new, enhanced vaccine certificate QR code from the Ontario Health Website
- The Grassroots tool provides you with a convenient way to import your new QR code to your Apple Wallet (iOS 15) or create a Photo Card
- Once imported, your new QR code will work with the Verify Ontario app that is used by businesses to confirm your vaccination status
- Please remember to delete your old green or red QR codes which were downloaded prior to October 15 - new QR codes are black and white
Thank you for putting your trust and confidence in Grassroots' volunteer-built, community-driven tool. We continue to focus on filling any temporary gaps while the official Ontario system is fully completed.
Grassroots originally developed a tool to generate QR codes as an interim measure until the Province of Ontario's official QR codes came out. Now that the province’s official certificates are available, everyone must download the new certificate as soon as possible. The Ontario enhanced vaccine certificate is your official proof of vaccination and will be accepted anywhere that is required to check your vaccination status.
Thank you from the vaccine-ontario.ca development team!
