Know before you go: where and what proof of vaccination is required

Proof of vaccination

Proof of vaccination and identification is required to enter all Town of Caledon community centres starting September 22, 2021 as announced by the Province. This is to further protect the community as we all continue to fight the Delta variant and the fourth wave.  

“These regulations by the Province are meant to prevent the spread of COVID-19, and any further restrictions,” said Mayor Allan Thompson. “I encourage all eligible residents to get fully vaccinated, so that we can get back to Caledon life sooner.” 

Our Caledon staff are our front line. We ask for your patience and understanding as Town staff continue to work tirelessly to serve our citizens and follow the Provincial regulations. Let's continue to work together. When entering any Town community centre (not including Town Hall, Libraries, OPP or Fire Stations) please follow these steps: 

  1. Show proof of being fully vaccinated and government-issued identification (driver’s license or health card) 
  2. Answer COVID-19 screening questions when asked by staff at the door, or fill out the online screening form

Once fully vaccinated, proof of vaccination will be emailed to you by Ontario Ministry of Health. Or you can download your vaccination certificate. Please show a digital or printed copy where required which must include name, date of vaccination and product name (brand of vaccine) at the time of vaccination.  Certificates can be printed at any Caledon Public Library branch. Please contact a library near you.  

If you are exempt from receiving the vaccine due to medical reasons, a doctor’s note is required in place of proof of vaccination to enter any Town facilities. The doctor’s note should specify the exemption and duration of the exemption. 

Showing proof of vaccination when entering Town community centres, applies to: 

  • Individuals aged 12 and over, unless otherwise exempt.  
  • Individuals must also validate that the vaccine receipt by providing identification issued by an institution or public body that includes name and date of birth. 
  • Individuals who do not provide proof of identification and proof of being fully vaccinated will not be permitted entry to the specified settings.  

Exemptions include, but are not limited to:  

  • Children 11 years of age and under. 
  • Youth 17 years of age and under, participating in indoor organized sport, including training, practices, games and competitions. 
  • Patrons with a medical exemption from vaccination. 
  • Other limited exemptions apply in meeting and event spaces (e.g., day camp, childcare, social services, court services, government services).  

Procedures are subject to change based on provincial rules and regulations. Additional information is available: Frequently Asked Questions
