Club Update – Thursday, 7th October 2021

Dear Members & Guests,

We are excited to announce we will be opening from Monday, 11th October. NSW Government confirmed the 70% double vaccinated milestone has been achieved and the road map to re-open has allowed us to open the doors from 10am Monday.

The NSW Government and our industry body, Clubs NSW, have advised us that entry to the club premises will only be for those patrons who are fully vaccinated or medically exempt. Please know that we will be following all rules & regulations as per the NSW Government and Public Health Order advice to ensure the safety of you, your families, our staff and the entire community.

We kindly ask that you review the helpful information by clicking here ?? (link to website) to be prepared before arriving and respectfully cooperate with our staff at the club entrance.

Any further information will be communicated as it comes to hand. We look forward to seeing you all soon. Club Charlestown & Club Lambton Team

3. Can I come to the club 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.

4. 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.

5. 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 (which can be 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.

6. How can I prove to the club that I’m fully vaccinated or medically exempt?

You can show our staff proof of vaccination:

  • Open your Express Plus Medicare mobile app, click “Immunisation history” and then click “View COVID-19 digital certificate”
  • Access our COVID-19 digital certificate in your Apple Wallet or Google Pay
  • Present a hard copy of your immunisation history statement
  • 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.

7. 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.

8. 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).
