NSW has been ‘open’ for nearly a week now and in many settings you need to show proof of vaccination status to gain entry.
For full information, please click here: https://www.nsw.gov.au/covid-19/vaccination/proof
As of yesterday, you can integrate your vaccination status as part of the Service NSW app following a successful regional pilot scheme.
As the vaccine data sits in the Federal Australian Immunisation Register to integrate the COVID-19 digital certificate into the Service NSW app you will need to:
• Ensure your Federal MyGov account is linked to Medicare
• Download the Express Plus Medicare app and sign in with your MyGov account details
• Select ‘Proof of vaccinations’ and then ‘View history’
• Select ‘Share with check in app’ and then ‘Service NSW’
Please note that if you struggle to get proof of your vaccination status online, you can ask your vaccination provider to print your immunisation history statement or COVID-19 digital certificate for you (i.e. your GP).
You can also call the Australian Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809 (8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday) and ask for your statement or certificate to be posted to you. It can take up to 14 days for your statement or certificate to arrive in the post.
Alternatively you can go to Centrelink in Taree or Tuncurry to get proof.
