How to show you’re vaccinated:

You will need to show proof that you’re vaccinated when you check in to businesses. You can get your proof of vaccination from:

• Express Plus Medicare mobile app

• Medicare online account through myGov

• MyHealth Record

• Australian Immunisation Register (printed copy only)

• The Service NSW app (coming soon)

If you are unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons, you will need to get a medical exemption form signed by your doctor and carry it with you.
