How to Submit Proof of Vaccination

Only vaccination records with a scannable QR code will be accepted as valid proof of full immunization. Recent negative test results will not be accepted in lieu of proof of vaccination.

  • The terms "proof of vaccination" and "fully immunized against COVID-19" are defined more fully in AR1016 - COVID-19 Vaccinations (PDF), Calgary Board of Education Administration Regulation 1016

You are able to get your vaccination record with the QR Code from the provincial government’s Alberta Covid Records website. If you experience technical challenges, the Government of Alberta offers a library of useful information via its Covid Records Helpdesk.

We take seriously our responsibility to protect your personal information and your immunization record will be handled in the same secure manner as all other personal information collected by Chinook Learning Services. We will not retain your vaccination record beyond the time that is necessary to confirm your enrolment.

For High School Upgrading Students

Students 20 years of age or older as of September 1 of the current school year must email proof of vaccination in the form of a scannable QR code to

For Continuing Education Students

The Calgary Board of Education (CBE) requires all students enrolled in Continuing Education courses which have an in-person component to provide proof of vaccination confirming they are fully immunized against COVID-19. You must submit proof of vaccination as outlined below:

  • Pre-register by submitting your proof of full immunization against COVID-19 to with the subject line "Submission of Proof of Vaccination." If you are a Continuing Education student taking an evening or Saturday course, you must pre-register as vaccination records will not be accepted in person.
  • Provide on-site by showing proof of full immunization to CBE personnel on the first day of classes. As noted above, this option is not available to students enrolled in evening or Saturday courses.


Persons who are unable to be vaccinated for medical or other valid protected grounds under the Alberta Humans Rights Act may apply for an exemption by emailing with the subject line "Requesting CBE-Approved Exemption." The exemption process can take upwards of two weeks. You will be unable to attend in-person courses unless your exemption request is approved. Students who receive exemptions will be reasonably accommodated to the point of undue hardship.
