CP NewsAlert: Yukon launches online COVID-19 vaccine credential
WHITEHORSE — Yukon is launching an online COVID-19 vaccine credential system.
Premier Sandy Silver says the credential will be available online and will help residents when they are asked for proof of vaccination in other jurisdictions, including when they travel.
The system will give residents the option of receiving a digital copy or printing a paper copy of their proof of vaccination.
Roughly 85 per cent of all eligible Yukon residents are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
Dr. Catherine Elliott, the territory’s acting chief medical officer of health, says there are 22 active COVID-19 cases in Yukon.
