Proof of Vaccination Required - Effective September 20, 2021

As mandated by the Province of Alberta, effective Monday, September 20, 2021 proof of vaccination will be required of all patrons in order for the North Edmonton Seniors Association to proceed with the delivery of its programs and services. This means that all patrons visiting the centre including members, instructors, coordinators and staff will be required to provide proof of their vaccinations on or before their scheduled start date for all activities commencing the week of September 20, 2021 and later. NESA endeavors to navigate through these challenging times, remains committed to ensuring the safety of its patrons and thanks you for your patience and support. 

How do I provide NESA with my proof of vaccination?

If you are vaccinated and can show hard copy or electronic proof before your first class the week of Monday, September 20, 2021 we encourage you to visit NESA during our scheduled business hours so your records and vaccination status can be updated. Alternatively you can provide vaccination proof via email so our team can update your file before your next scheduled visit. We recognize that it is going to take some time to get everyone up to date in our system but we will do our best with the current resources we have available over the coming days. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support.

When do I need to provide proof of my vaccination?

If you are able to provide your proof of vaccination prior to the start date of your activity or program, we strongly encourage you to contact us via email with your proof of vaccination as it is the easiest and most efficient option. Alternatively you can visit NESA during regular business hours (weekdays, 8:30am-4:00pm) and look for the 'Proof of Vaccination' check-in station in the main lobby.

Members who do not provide NESA vaccination proof starting the week of Monday, September 20, 2021, will have their memberships suspended and not be permitted to participate in activities at NESA until such proof is provided.

If members wish to fully withdraw from their programs and activities because they are unable to adhere to NESA's proof of vaccination requirement they can submit a request to do so via email

What will you do with the information I am providing?

Please note that if you choose to visit NESA to show proof of your vaccination, we do not require a copy of this documentation, we just need to review a hard copy or electronic confirmation of it in person. Should you choose to email your vaccination proof, please note that once your vaccination status has been verified and NESA's records are updated, your email will be permanently deleted as NESA will not be saving, printing or storing this vaccination information, we simply just need to verify that it exists for you. 

What exactly does NESA need to see to verify proof of my vaccination?

Whether sending it via email or providing proof in person, we will accept the following: 

-The hardcopy or a photo of your vaccination paperwork confirming you have received one or both doses (ensure your full name is legible and present on this document);

-A screen shot of your MyHealth Alberta and/or Netcare records confirming your completed vaccinations (ensure your full name is present);

-The prescription paperwork and labels provided to you from your pharmacist or physician confirming your vaccinations (ensure your full name is legible and present on this document);

-Your immunization card or hard copy records (ensure your full name is legible and present on this document);

Thank you once again for your patience, understanding and support - if everyone does their part we are confident that we can safely navigate through these unprecedented times and maintain a safe and enjoyable recreation community for all.
