Immunization Cards and Immunization Records



Manitoba Immunization Verifier Application


The Manitoba Immunization Verifier app allows individuals and businesses to scan a QR code to confirm if an individual is fully vaccinated. Manitoba’s app currently scans the QR code from the Manitoba immunization card, and shows only the person’s name and a green checkmark or red x to show if the person is immunized. 

The app will be updated in mid November 2021 to be able to verify the Pan-Canadian proof of vaccination credential (PVC). Until then, businesses and venues should continue to accept printed copies that are proof of immunization from other jurisdictions - including the PVC.

This means businesses and other venues will check an individual’s immunization status the same way, even as the PVC becomes more widely used. It is strongly recommended that individuals continue to use Manitoba’s immunization card while in the province.

Proof of Immunization


The following documents are considered valid proof of immunization in Manitoba: 

  • Manitoba Immunization Card 
  • Pan-Canadian Proof of Vaccination Credential 
  • National Defence Canada Covid-19 Vaccine Record / Card 
  • Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA) Travel Vaccination Record 
  • an official document issued by other Canadian provinces or territories containing information of a person’s COVID-19 vaccination history 

See samples of: Provincial and National Defence Canada Immunization Records (pdf) 

International travelers: Immunization documentation submitted to Canadian border service officials and government-issued photo identification that confirms their citizenship. 




Pan-Canadian Proof of Vaccination Credential (PVC)


In addition to Manitoban’s immunization card, a new federal immunization card - called the Pan-Canadian Proof of Vaccination Credential (PVC) - is available for fully vaccinated Manitobans for domestic or international travel.

Manitoba’s verifier app will be updated so it can read the provincial and national QR codes.  This expanded function is expected to be available in November 2021.  This will help ensure businesses and other venues do not have to change the way they check immunization status as the federal card becomes more widely used.

It is strongly recommended that individuals continue to use Manitoba’s immunization card while in the province. The PVC includes more information, such as date of birth, date of immunization and the brand of vaccine received.  Manitoba’s immunization card contains no personal health information, which better protects privacy.

If the screen comes back green with the person's name, compare the name a photo ID to confirm their identity. If the screen comes back red, the transaction has failed.
