The Victorian Labor Party government has a series of “Vaccinated economic trialIn the region of Victoria, decide how to deploy your vaccine passport throughout the state.

This happens after the state falls below the 80% single vaccination target set by the Andrews government roadmap, which would have been slightly relaxed from September 26th.

Tourism Minister Martin Pakra told reporters on September 26 that up to 20 companies in the highly vaccinated areas of Victoria will participate in the vaccine passport trial from October 11.

“It’s about two weeks before we expect to reach the 70% double dose threshold. At this point, it’s expected to occur around October 26,” said Pakula.

“It’s to see how our vaccinated economic system works, and we have a larger number of patrons and a crowd where everyone in the field is confirmed to be fully vaccinated. I will try it. “

The trial will determine the process that will be modeled across the state after the 70% target has been achieved.

However, companies in some regions remain confused about who can join what kind of company. There is also confusion about how the system works.

“It’s great to get the details as soon as possible whenever they announce something,” said Dennis Bice, Chief Executive Officer of BeBendigo. Herald Sun“The devil is in the details,” he added.

According to the government’s announcement, six municipalities were selected for the pilot program: Bass Coast, Greater Bendigo, Pyrenees, Warnambourg, Broke and East Gipsland.

Mr. Vice said he was excited that Bendigo was part of the government’s program. But some in his community are nervous about vaccine passports, he said.

“Everyone has an opinion and view on this,” he said.

He added that the Chamber of Commerce sought financial incentives for the program so that it was not a “business camouflage”, given the threat of abuse from angry customers.

“How many companies can increase user limits will be a really important point in understanding whether it’s worth it,” Niemann said.

“It is difficult to confirm the ID etc., so it depends on what kind of support is provided.”

Prime Minister Daniel Andrews said it was “very important” for a company to appoint a qualified person to oversee the program.

The provincial government will place a support officer on-site to ensure that the exams run smoothly and that participating companies receive the support they need.

However, Hugh de Crezer, Executive Director of the Center for Human Rights Law, said: Age Demanding full vaccination and access to goods and services in exchange for work entailed various human rights risks that could lead to serious legal challenges.

At the same time, “in the event of a public health emergency, courts generally give more discretion,” Krezer said.

“Someone may want to challenge the public health order, but it will be very difficult to successfully challenge it.”
