Vaccine passports are set to roll out from October this year for international travel to resume, but the Premier assures they will be commonplace for more day-to-day instances for the foreseeable future.
Currently, vaccinated Australians can access a COVID-19 digital certificate through MyGov or the Express Plus Medicare app. Those needing proof of vaccination for overseas travel will soon have this linked to their passport chips, along with a smartphone compatible QR code.
“It’s gonna be commonplace,” Mark McGowan told Clairsy & Lisa on Friday.
“It’ll mean that for doing some things for the foreseeable future, you’ll need to be vaccinated.”
He added that could be visiting a hospital, catching a plane or going to the footy.
“Where you’re in proximity to large numbers of people, or sick people.”
