IMPORTANT UPDATE! Proof of vaccination required to enter Sage

Posted on December 1 2021

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Sage has prioritized the health and safety of volunteers, staff, and the people we serve. As such, Sage is taking a phased approach to reopening our building to in-person services. This approach includes risk mitigation and preventative measures, and will continually evolve as context and information changes. Advancement between phases of reopening depends on such things as:

  • community vaccination and transmission rates;
  • the number of active cases in the community;
  • variant spread; and, 
  • public health orders and recommendations.

As of December 1, 2021, everyone entering Sage’s main building or participating in Sage programming offsite, are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and must provide proof of vaccination at point of entry. Proof of vaccination will not be required to access the Seniors Safe House. 

As per Sage’s Pandemic Vaccination Policy, fully vaccinated means: 

  • having received two doses of a vaccine considered valid by Health Canada in a two dose COVID-19 vaccine series, or one dose of a vaccine considered valid by Health Canada in a one dose COVID-19 vaccine series; and

  • having fourteen days elapsed since the date upon which the person received the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine considered valid by Health Canada of a two dose series, or one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine considered valid by Health Canada in a one dose vaccine series. 

Proof of vaccination means:

  • a copy of an individual’s Alberta Health COVID-19 Immunization Record, which can be obtained from their MyHealth Records account; or

  • A vaccine record with QR code, which can be obtained here; or

  • Where applicable, proof equivalent to (a) or (b) of this definition that is from another Canadian Province or Territory, or the Canadian Armed Forces.

If you need one of Sage’s essential services but cannot provide proof of vaccination, alternate forms of service delivery, including service over the phone, will be explored. 

Sage will monitor the impact of this approach throughout each phase of reopening and adjust accordingly. The building will fully open when we are confident that it is safe to do so. Sage staff and volunteers look forward to serving the community in-person again.
