Uploading your proof of vaccination: What international students need to know
All University of Manitoba students, faculty and staff are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. As soon as you have your proof of vaccination, please upload your documentation.
You can upload your proof of vaccination on UM’s secure site – it’s quick and easy, with people reporting that it took them only two minutes.
If you are an international student who was vaccinated outside of Canada, you can upload the proof of vaccination you used when you entered Canada. Here is what you need to know.
Check if you are fully vaccinated
To be considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you must meet the provincial health guidelines.
According to the province’s website, individuals are considered fully immunized:
- two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer, Moderna, or Astra Zeneca vaccines, or
- two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
Individuals who have received one or two doses of COVID-19 vaccines outside of Canada that were not approved in Canada but were approved by the World Health Organization (WHO), require a dose of Pfizer or Moderna to be considered fully immunized. This dose can be administered at supersites, pop-ups or mobile clinics, or by a health care provider or pharmacist.
If you have received three doses of a vaccine not approved by Health Canada, you are also considered fully immunized.
Upload your proof of vaccination to UM’s secure portal
If you were vaccinated in Manitoba, upload an image of your QR code from your Manitoba Digital Immunization Card. If you are unable to get a Manitoba digital or physical immunization card, upload an image or a file of your record of vaccination.
UM is accepting proof of vaccination from outside of Canada. If you were vaccinated in another country, you can upload the proof of vaccination you used when authorized to enter Canada.
UM is also accepting proof of vaccination from other provinces and territories.
Once you’ve uploaded your document, your information will be verified and you will only be contacted if the university requires further information.
