COVID-19 vaccination certificates ready to add on Service NSW app
Proving COVID-19 vaccination status when checking into public venues across NSW has just gotten easier with the COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate ready to add to the Service NSW app.
The state-wide roll out of this feature follows a successful regional pilot with clubs, aged-care facilities and taxis in Port Macquarie, Tamworth, Wagga Wagga and Lismore, as well as internal government participants.
How to add the COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate to add to the Service NSW app:
- 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’
Digital and Customer Service Minister Victor Dominello said the integration of the vaccine certificate with the app will make things easier for the people of NSW.
“This is an extra digital service to make life easier for the businesses and customers of NSW as we open back up. NSW is the first jurisdiction in Australia to roll out an integrated QR code solution for displaying vaccination status state-wide,” Mr Dominello said.
“When someone visits a venue, they’ll be able to show their green check-in tick and vaccination status simultaneously, saving staff and customers time.”
The Service NSW app will include a number of security measures to help compliance officers and businesses with checking and validating a customer’s vaccination status, including a NSW Waratah logo hologram and rotating QR codes, similar to the Digital Driver Licence.
