Provincial Vaccine Requirements for 12-17 Yr Old - IMPORTANT UPDATE
Submitted By Teresa Metcalfe on Saturday, December 25, 2021
As you may be aware, the province announced last week they will be removing the exemption to show proof of vaccination for children 12-17 years old participating in organized sport effective Monday, December 20.

Therefore, County staff will be required to check for proof of vaccination (2 doses + 14 days) and personal identification for all participants, including those previously exempt or under vaccine mandates from their governing bodies starting December 20.



*NOTE - For children turning 12 years old early in 2022 (born in 2010), that could not yet be fully vaccinated.  Good news – the province has exempted children born in 2010 who are 12 years and 12 weeks of age or younger.

This means those children born in 2010 and turning 12 early in 2022 will not need to show proof of vaccination (most would not be fully vaccinated yet as they were not eligible).  They will need to show personal ID showing their birthdate however.

Please note this is a grace period essentially, so those children would be required to show proof of vaccination by March 26, 2022 under current regulations.
