Proof of Vaccination

Instructions for uploading your proof of vaccination using the SLC SAFE app beginning September 24 at noon.

All SLC students, employees, 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. 

Uploading your proof of vaccination records is the final step in confirming your status for the semester.

Gather your vaccination records

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

  • Find your vaccine receipts emailed by the Ministry of Health - subject line "Dose Administration Receipt", take screenshots, and save the image files.
  • If you can't locate the 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.

Use the SLC SAFE app

Proof is uploaded in the SLC SAFE app - the same app people have been using when coming to campus.
