Can I come to The Tavern if I’ve only had one vaccine dose?

The NSW Government has announced that only people who have received both doses of the vaccine can come to the club the Monday after NSW reaches the 70 per cent double-dose milestone.

How can I get proof in hard copy?

You can ask your vaccination provider to print your immunisation history statement.

You can also call the Australian Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809 and ask them to send your statement to you. It can take up to 14 days to arrive in the post.

What if I can’t get vaccinated?

Subject to the legislation which mandates vaccinations, people who can’t be vaccinated may be permitted to enter the club if they obtain a “contraindication certificate” in the approved form (found here).

Please consult your medical practitioner for further information. It is likely that we will only be permitted to accept a medical exemption in the approved form.

How can I prove to The Tavern that I’m medically exempt?

Present a hard copy of a medical exemption (contraindication certificate) in the approved form completed by a medical practitioner.

We kindly ask that you have this information ready before you arrive at the club, to prevent crowding.

How will the club know my proof of vaccine or medical exemption is authentic?

At our discretion, we may attempt to verify that your “proof of vaccine” is authentic.

We remind you that it is a federal offence to falsify this information.

I am fully vaccinated but do not wish to show staff proof of my vaccination status, can I still enter the facility?

No, unfortunately to be eligible to enter the facility, staff will need to view proof of vaccination before entry is permitted.

Where can I find more information?

Further information on accessing and proving your vaccination status can be found on the Services Australia website (here) and the NSW Government website (here).
