Glimpse of NSW vaccine passport

NSW Minister for Services Victor Dominello has taken to social media to give businesses across the state a preview of how vaccination status will be included in the Service NSW App.

In posts on Twitter, Minister Dominello shared a picture of himself holding a draft mock-up of a screen that appears after QR code check-in to a venue using the Service NSW app which includes vaccination status.

He also said that pilots of between 100 and 500 people will commence in regional NSW from 6 October, and following the pilots, there will be a state-wide rollout as NSW starts to reopen once the 70% double-dose vaccination is reached.

As of Thursday, the state vaccination rates stood at 83.6% with one dose and 55.5% with two.

In her press conference on Wednesday, NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said they were working to ensure that when the state reaches that 70% target, “we’re ready to roll out that vaccine passport”.

She also promised further information on what this will mean for business owners.

“I wanted to again assure our business community that the NSW government will have a similar compliance regime to before the Delta outbreak. We’ll make very clear what responsibilities individuals and businesses have,” the PM said.

She said as they get closer to reopening time, they’ll make clear what those responsibilities are.
