Responding to Requests for Vaccination Status Information Under the Provincial Health Officer’s Order of March 7, 2022
PLEASE NOTE: This information applies only to individual registrants who have received a request from the CCBC to provide their proof of vaccination or exemption pursuant to the Order.
If you have not received an email from the CCBC requesting this information, you DO NOT need to submit anything to us about your vaccination status. Unsolicited submissions of vaccination status information or documents will be deleted to protect your privacy.
If the CCBC has requested you submit proof of vaccination or exemption, you must provide, by reply to our email, either
· your “vaccine card” and your “photo
identification” (if you are vaccinated),
· your proof of “exemption” (if you have one).
Copies of your documents must be submitted electronically in one of the following file formats:
An acceptable vaccine card is one of the following forms of proof that the holder is vaccinated:
- Electronic proof or a printed copy of an electronic proof,
- issued by the BC government in the form of a QR code, accessible through the Health Gateway online platform, and
- showing the name of the holder.
- Proof in writing, issued by the BC government for the purpose of showing proof of vaccination in accordance with orders of the provincial health officer made under the Public Health Act.
- Proof, whether electronic or in writing, issued
- by the government of Canada or of a province of Canada, and
- for the purpose of showing proof of vaccination in accordance with an order made in the exercise of a statutory power with respect to the protection of public health or the facilitation of international travel.
Acceptable photo identification is one of the following:
- A photo BC Services Card within the meaning of the Identification Card regulation.
- A temporary or permanent driver’s licence, issued by a government of a province of Canada.
- A certificate of Indian Status.
- A Métis Nation British Columbia citizenship and identification card.
- A passport attesting to citizenship or other national status, issued by a government of any jurisdiction and including a photograph of the holder.
- A military identification card that is issued by a government of any jurisdiction, which includes a photograph of the holder and is satisfactory to the College.
- Another form of identification that is issued by a government of any jurisdiction which includes a photograph of the holder and is satisfactory to the College.
An exemption is a variance issued to a person under the Public Health Act on the basis of a medical deferral to a vaccination, which permits an unvaccinated person to do that which they would otherwise be prohibited from doing pursuant to an order made under the Public Health Act, despite not being vaccinated.
A valid exemption must be one issued by the Office of the Provincial Health Officer.
If you were vaccinated outside of Canada, and have not already provided your vaccination status to the College of Chiropractors of BC, you must provide:
- proof in English, French, or a certified translation into English or French, whether electronic or in writing, issued by a government or a government body or by an organization that administered the vaccine for the purpose of showing proof of vaccination, which
- is in the form of an official certificate, pass, card, receipt or confirmation showing the number of doses of vaccine received,
- is not just a QR code,
- includes in text
- your name,
- the name of the government or government body or organization that administered the vaccine,
- the brand name or any other information that identifies the vaccine,
- the date the vaccine was administered.
