NEW VACCINATION CHECKING PROCESS

In line with current Government directions, persons aged 16 years or older will be required to provide proof of their vaccination status or exemption to gain entry.

To ensure we meet the requirements of the directions, this must be shown each time you visit and a copy carried with you (either electronically or printed) at all times. Currently we are not permitted to record your vaccination status and as such, you will be asked to show proof each time you visit.

To speed up the entry process, we encourage you to link your vaccination record to the Services Victoria app. Instructions on how to do this are available at: https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/get-your-covid-19-digital-certificate

Approved options for proving your vaccination status include:

  • Your COVID-19 digital certificate which can be accessed through the Services Victoria app, the Express Plus Medicare app or via your Medicare online account through myGov.
  • A printed version of the COVID-19 digital certificate or immunisation history statement (available through myGov)
  • A signed copy of your exemption form
  • Further information on how to access your vaccination record is available at: https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/get-your-covid-19-digital-certificate

UNVACCINATED PERSONS

In line with Government advice, unvaccinated persons or those who cannot provide proof of their vaccination status will not be permitted entry, and penalties may apply to those who do not comply or who carry a fake form of vaccination proof.
