Australian State Starts Testing Digital Vaccine Passport


The New South Wales (NSW) government will begin a two-week pilot of the Vaccine Passport feature on the existing Service NSW check-in app starting October 6.

Approximately 100-500 people in the region’s New South Wales are selected to try out the ability to view both check-in and vaccination status at the same time.

New South Wales is set to open for full vaccination in mid-October, and customer service minister Victor Dominero said the feature is likely to be missed.

“But in reality, there are currently other options that indicate the status of vaccination.” Dominero said on September 22.. “So this is just to make it easier for people.”

According to Dominero, you can now access your vaccination certificate from the Medicare Express app or call Service NSW or Australian Immunization Register to get a hard copy if needed.

“What we’re trying to do is integrate it, give people the option to include it in their service app, and make it really easy when checking in to venues throughout New South Wales.” He said. “That way, you don’t have to open several different apps just to get into the venue.”

Users will be asked to agree to the app to access their immune records before displaying their vaccination status.

Closed pilots bring participants from industries such as New South Wales clubs and senior care.

Premier of New South Wales Gladys Beregicrian goes out on September 9 for full vaccination from the first Monday after the state has passed the 70% double vaccination target currently projected on October 11. Announced that the ban will be lifted.

However, a significant level of public dissatisfaction with stay-at-home orders and vaccination obligations has prompted protests across Australia.

New South Wales protests have been crushed by heavy police forces, but Melbourne construction workers are now leading an ongoing protest towards Day 4.

On the second and third days of Melbourne’s protest, Victoria police were seen firing projectiles at unarmed civilians to disperse the crowd.
