Dear Renegade U12 Families and Players,

The Regional Municipality of York is adding an amendment to the  Letter of Instruction that went into effect on Friday, October 1, 2021 requiring individuals 12 years of age and older to provide proof of vaccination when participating in indoor organized sports.  

The attached updated Letter_of_Instruction, which comes into effect on Saturday, January 1, 2022, provides children who turn 12-years-old in 2022 a grace period of 

12 weeks (three months) from the date of their birthday, during which they will not be required to show proof of vaccination at indoor sports and recreation facilities.  

This grace period provides children turning 12 in 2022 significant time to complete their full COVID-19 vaccination series (two doses), while continuing to participate in indoor sports activities.   Once an individual reaches 12 weeks after their birthday, they must provide proof of vaccination in accordance with the Letter of Instruction.   

A media release announcing this update to York Region’s proof of vaccination Letter of Instruction is attached for your information (Media_Release_-_York_Region).  Protecting the health and well-being of our communities remains York Region’s top priority as we continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Vaccines are safe and the most effective tool to protect against the serious outcomes related to COVID-19, including illness, hospitalization and death.  

COVID-19 vaccines have been approved for all residents 12 years of age and older and are readily available through walk-in clinics and appointments. Booster doses are also available for  vulnerable populations if at least six months have passed since receiving their second dose.  Children turning 12 in 2022 are encouraged to receive their first dose vaccine at their earliest opportunity.

More information on eligibility, clinic locations, hours and how to book an appointment is available at   

As always, remains the trusted source of COVID-19 information in York Region.
