Proof of Vaccination

Instructions for uploading your proof of vaccination using the SLC SAFE app.

Proof of Vaccination

Effective December 18, 2021, all SLC students and employees are required to re-submit proof of their vaccinated status via the SLC SAFE app. Information submitted prior to December 18, 2021, will have been erased from the system.

All SLC students and employees are required to provide proof they are fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption using the SLC SAFE app by January 3, 2022.
 
Everyone entering an SLC campus building is required to provide proof of full vaccination or approved exemption and negative antigen test result. Contractors and visitors are required to be fully vaccinated or have an approved medical exemption (and negative rapid antigen test result from within three days/72 hours) in order to come to campus. Note: you must be part of a pre-arranged group or event to access campus. SLC campuses remain closed to the general public until further notice.

Gather your vaccination records

To prepare, ensure you have image files of your COVID-19 vaccination records or receipts.

  • Take a screenshot of your Ontario COVID-19 Proof of Vaccination (enhanced certificate with QR Code) or your Ontario COVID-19 Vaccination receipt, this can be used as proof in SLC SAFE app.
  • If you can't locate your vaccine receipt emails, get your electronic COVID-19 vaccine receipts from the Government of Ontario. Open the PDFs, take screenshots, and save the image files.
  • Note: the app is unable to accept PDFs.
