The application VaxiCode, intended for public use, must be downloaded on a smart phone or a tablet. It is free and available in the App Store for Apple devices and on Google Play for Android devices.
For the application to work on Apple devices, you must have an iPod Touch, an iPhone 6 or an iPad with iOS 11 software installed. Any more recent version will also work.
For the application to work on Android devices, version 8.1 or later must be installed.
A standard Internet connection is necessary for downloading and updating the application. It is important to keep on top of updates to ensure the application is working properly and displaying the most recent QR code, for example in the event of a change in public health recommendations. By updating the application, the latest public health recommendations will be included. It is strongly recommended to connect the device to the Internet so updates are done automatically every day. For Apple devices, automatic updates may be delayed for up to 24 hours. You can force an update by installing it manually.
The latest version of the application is 1.3.13 on iOS and 1.3.13 on Android.
Your data is protected. When you register a proof of vaccination in VaxiCode, it is saved with encryption. VaxiCode does not communicate with the Internet and the proof never leaves the application, which acts as a secure wallet.
Verification by VaxiCode Verif
Vaccination passports have not been required in Québec since March 12, 2022. The proof verification function in VaxiCode Verif has been disabled.
For additional security, during a verification, it is recommended that you show only your QR code, hiding any other information. Present the QR code for your most recent dose.
Scanners in other jurisdictions can read your QR code when you’re travelling.
