Update: 1:00 PM September 28 

The QR Codes in vaccine records were temporarily removed on Friday, September 24 due to potential security concerns. The issue has been resolved, and QR codes are again available in MySaskHealthRecord. Any QR codes that were saved, printed or captured before Tuesday should be deleted or destroyed as they have been made invalid. A new QR code will be available on your MSHR account.

Individuals can show their proof of vaccination through wallet cards received at the time of immunization, a printed copy of your MySaskHealthRecord vaccine certificate, a screenshot of your certificate, a vaccine printout from Saskatchewan Health Authority Public Health, or a QR code.

Businesses requiring proof of vaccination will also require ID from anyone 18 and older. Anyone aged 12-17 will need to show ID unless accompanied by an adult with proof of vaccination and ID. Youth 12 and under who do not have a photo ID or an accompanying adult will be allowed to show other forms of government-issued ID such as birth certificate or health service card.

Those who are unvaccinated will have the option of providing proof of a negative COVID-19 test from within the previous 72 hours.

The Saskatchewan government is removing the QR records from the COVID-19 vaccination records on the MySaskHealthRecord, temporarily, after an issue was discovered with the rollout. The codes will not be issued on vaccination certificates again until sometime this week. 

It was discovered that the records of up to 19 people had the potential of displaying in someone else’s QR code. Information from at least one person has been identified so far. 

Anyone who has already printed, downloaded or otherwise captured their QR code for their COVID-19 vaccination status is being asked to destroy or delete the code, as it will no longer be valid. Anyone who had another person’s name appear when the code was scanned is being asked to contact eHealth Saskatchewan’s Privacy Officer. 

"We are working closely with our vendor to investigate and resolve any issues and prevent other problems,” eHealth Saskatchewan Vice President of Programs and Technology Davin Church said. “We understand the high demand in Saskatchewan for records to meet proof of vaccination requirements.” 

Until the issue is resolved, other options that can be used include a wallet card or earlier version of the MySaskHealthRecord COVID-19 vaccine certificate, or a COVID-19 vaccine printout from the Saskatchewan Health Authority.
