Hola.
Is there any talk in Zihua of implementing these so-called "vaccine passports" which are currently the rage in Canada? Here in BC they go into effect September 13. They are supposedly required as proof of vaccination against Covid-19. They are required for entrance into public places such as restaurants, movies etc. We are required to get them online, although the web site keeps crashing because of overuse.

Rumor has it that Blue Flag beaches throughout Mexico will require the Vax certificate for entry and of course you must walk through a puddle of disinfectant.

I have mine and it will not bother me in the least if I have to use it. People need to get vaccinated.

But until most people can even get vaccinated any discussion of requiring proof is premature.

I got mine in BC today. There was a "virtual queue" of about 25 minutes, but no problems with the service crashing.

We didn't find the BC on-line application very user-friendly.....we were successfully registered, but couldn't see how to print a hard copy.
(We don't own a cellphone, so we won't be able to flash our phone to get into restaurants, etc.)
The only alternative is a printed copy....and no one at the BC government help-line could help.......so....we requested they mail hard copies, which they promised we'd receive "in 5 to 10 business days". Hopefully in time to meet the mandated deadline of 18 September.

A quick question: I was told today that all passengers flying from Canada to the USA must provide proof of a recent negative COVID test. Correct?
(I realize that a recent negative COVID test is required to re-enter Canada.)

Yes, that is our understanding. My wife's best friend of a million years will be flying from Toronto to visit in early October. We searched through many websites, some giving conflicting reports. However, the most credible seem to agree with your assessment. You can fly into the USA from Canada with a recent negative Covid test.

I’m a U.S. person, I would like some sort of verifiable, accepted way of demonstrating I’m fully vaccinated. Other than the card I have that you can buy on the internet (like, who does that instead of just getting vaccinated -don’t bother answering, too aggitating).

Individual states and/or the US federal government aren't issuing vaccine passports for, at the very least, international travel purposes?

Gee, if the USA did theirs the way Mexico does it would be an easier process with a more reliable outcome. But hey, I'm just a third-world man, what could I possibly know?

I have a QR thing on my phone from the state of
California. It shows my 2-dose vax, type and dates.
Haven't traveled anywhere yet, so I don't know if or
how or where it works!
Still masking and testing is ok with me.

Hope to see friends on La Ropa sometime soon!

That's what they should be using across the USA. Simple and verifiable.

There is a way to get a version of a passport through Clear that actually provides verified ID with a picture. They have partnered with open table so it works for restaurants. Additionally, Washington state has made vaccine records available online.

Mexico has all its vaccine data centralized by the federal government, so it's easy to get our Certificado de Vacunación online, and it's easy to verify it via the QR data it contains. The problem in the States is every state does it their own way so nothing is uniform. Kinda like gun control.

If you registered for the vaccine then you should be in the database.

I guess I didn't register. My curp number was only good for one day. The site doesn't recognize me. I guess I will have to go through the bs here and try to get my passport through the Canadian website. Lots of hoops to jump through.

Hola, here in Quebec the vaccination passport is in use for a week now and it is very easy to use. The only ones complaining are the antivax because they cannot access restaurants or gyms. They choose not to get vaccinated and they have to live with the consequences… To access essential services, like going to the hospital, you don’t have to show it, it is required only for non essential services. Even if you get your vaccinations in another province or country you can get a QR code if your proof of vaccination is written in English or French. If you don’t have a smart phone, you can print your Code and show it and if you don’t have a computer, you can ask the government to send you a QR code in the form of a card (like a credit card). We tried it in the gym and in a few restaurants and it worked like a breeze. Up to now, 82% of the population over 12 years old have receive a complete vaccination ( 2 doses of Pfizer or Moderna or Astra Zeneca or 1 dose of Johnson). We are in the 4th wave of the virus infection but it is essentially the non-vaccinated that get it and have to go to the hospital.
