Important info regarding COVID policies
As we’ve been warning over the last few weeks, starting October 24th UBCAni will be forced to check for BC Vaccine Passports indicating full vaccination as well as matching ID at all events according to provincial health policies, and forced to deny entry to any who cannot provide this. As the Halloween Social takes place on the 30th, we are once again reminding you to please apply for your BC Vaccine Passport ASAP if you haven’t already. See the section below for more details on the process.

UBCAni’s 2021 in-person events COVID protocol

UBCAni will firmly require the BC Vaccine Card of full, double-dose vaccination (i.e. the green QR code) for all events starting October 24th.

We understand that members from outside of the province may be experiencing delays, but per BC’s provincial health regulations, we will be forced to only accept the QR code vaccine passport and deny entry to those without it, even if you have other proof of vaccination. For those from outside of BC (including international students), you will need to register to get vaccinated here with your Personal Health Number. If you don’t have a PHN, you will need to call +1-833-838-2323. If you got vaccinated outside of BC, please apply online for your immunization record here. Lastly, if your out-of-BC records are in a language other than English or French, please refer to this for translating it. 

Thank you for respecting our Covid-19 protocols!
