Quebec will implement vaccine passports in September if COVID-19 infections rise

The passport system will restrict access to non-essential services, such as gyms and bars based on the individuals' vaccination status.

Quebec's health minister says if COVID-19 infections rise, the province will impose a vaccine-passport system to access non-essential services, such as gyms and bars.

Christian Dube says the proposed health order would apply for specific periods of time in areas where COVID-19 transmission is high.

He says this would allow the government to avoid imposing fresh lockdowns if cases begin to rise in the colder months and permit businesses to operate despite having COVID-19 outbreaks.

The government is waiting until September to impose the passport system because everyone over 12 should have been able to receive two COVID-19 vaccine doses by then.
