Coming to Sport and Wellness?

What you need to know

QR Code Proof of Vaccination Required

Starting November 15, proof of vaccination using an Alberta COVID-19 vaccine record QR code will be the only valid proof of vaccination to enter Sport and Wellness. Download your QR code from the Government of Alberta website. We will scan your QR code at the welcome desk. You will also be required to present a valid ID to verify your identity. If the record is valid, the app will display a green checkmark and the person's legal name and date of birth. It does not access or store any other personal information.

Valid proof of vaccination

Alberta vaccine record with QR code (paper or digital) is now the only valid Alberta-issued proof of vaccination accepted by operators participating in REP.

Other accepted forms of proof of vaccination include:

Valid identification that matches the vaccine record is also required for adults 18 and over.

Vaccinated Outside Alberta

If you or your children under 18 were partially or fully vaccinated outside of Alberta, update your health records by submitting your out-of-province/country immunization records online at

Repeat Patrons

Repeat patrons can provide consent verbally for Sport and Wellness to record that they have met the vaccination requirements for the Restrictions Exemption Program for future visits. We are working on integrating this data into our system.

Proof of Negative Test

If you are unable to submit vaccination verification or cannot be vaccinated due to medical or protected grounds, you will be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test within the 72 hours prior to your visit to campus. Sport and Wellness will collect, use, disclose and protect personal information in accordance with Alberta’s Personal Information Protection Act.
