QR Codes - FAQ
Submitted By Dave Tiffin on Thu 12 16, 21
      The Ontario government has mandated that as of January 4, 2022 only a QR code, along with photo id, will suffice as proof of Covid vaccination.  QR codes are new to many people, so here is a summary of frequently asked questions:
1)What is a QR Code?  - It is a machine-scannable image that can instantly be read using a Smartphone camera. Every QR code consists of a number of black squares and dots which represent certain pieces of information. When your Smartphone scans this code, it translates that information into something that can be easily understand by humans.  It looks similar to image at the right.

2) Where do I get my vaccination QR code – Vaccinated residents of Huron Perth can go the province’s website for proof of vaccination at https://covid19.ontariohealth.ca/ 
     a.This explains, simply, what is necessary to get your proof of vaccination.
     b. You will be able to download and/or print the certificate.

3)How is the code used – Show your QR code either in paper format or as an image on your phone when entering a location requiring proof of vaccination.  The person you show the code will scan it and if a green check mark appears, your proof is valid.  You will be required to show a photo id to ensure you are the person on the QR code.

4)What if I don’t have a cell phone – If you can’t have an electronic image, print the proof of vaccination and keep it with you.

5)What if I don’t have a printer – Libraries will assist people who don’t have access to a computer and/or printer in order to get their proof of vaccination QR code printed.
