Easier Check-In For Crowds At Major Events

Victorians attending Oaks Day on Thursday will be able to quickly and easily check-in and show proof of vaccination using the Service Victoria app, which will be linked to their digital Oaks Day ticket on their phone.

Each Ticketek digital entry ticket to Flemington on Thursday will feature a button which attendees can click to check in and show proof of vaccination, without having to scan a QR code.

The solution will allow for faster and safer check-ins, and it’s expected the technology will also be used by other ticketing companies in the months to come.

More than 3 million people have now linked their vaccination certificate to the Service Victoria app. Victorians who still need to connect their proof of vaccination status can add their digital certificate to the Service Victoria app through MyGov or the Express Medicare Plus App.

Ticketek tested the new technology at the NRL Grand Final at Suncorp Stadium, helping to reduce crowding at QR code check-in points.

Anyone who is unable to access the certificate online or who cannot add it to the Service Victoria app via the Express Plus Medicare app or MyGov can request an immunisation history statement from the Australian Immunisation Register.

Anyone without a smartphone can call the Australian Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809 and ask them to send their immunisation history statement, or they can print their vaccination certificate through MyGov.
