Australians who have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine can now prove their inoculation status with a digital passport for the first time, it has been announced. The official certificate - unveiled by the federal government yesterday - has a coat-of-arms hologram and includes the holder's name, date of birth and a green validity tick.
VACCINE CERTIFICATES ARRIVE
TOTT News has been covering the increasingly likely proposition of vaccine passports in Australia since the pandemic began. See here, here, here and here for examples.
In April, it was reported that national cabinet ‘welcomed' the introduction of a new COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate, which will be made available through the Medicare app or myGov.
This week, the plans are coming a reality.
Government Services Minister Linda Reynolds confirmed yesterday the rollout of vaccine passports in Australia, in which a digital certificate will be administered to prove inoculation status.
This would then allow them to travel or gain entry to certain businesses:
The time has finally arrived, ladies and gentlemen.
Every certificate, it has been announced, will contain a coat-of-arms hologram, including the holder's name, date of birth and a green validity tick.
Only Australians who have had two doses would be able to access a certificate.
Providers can upload vaccination information via an online portal, either directly or through software they use at their practice that is integrated into the AIR.
Facing Senate Estimates on Friday night, Services Australia CEO Rebecca Skinner explained:
"At the moment, everyone has an immunisation history statement. If you have a myGov account, and you have linked your myGov account with Medicare, you can either look at your immunisation history statement through myGov or you can look at it through the Medicare Express Plus app," she said.
"We've been on a journey, through the year, just doing small releases to bring a digital record into a certificate".
Skinner noted that while the certificate is currently only just for COVID-19 vaccinations, further jabs may have the capability to be added eventually if required.
Yes, folks, the Brave New World is transforming from a science fiction blueprint to a present reality:
"There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods.
And this seems to be the Final Revolution."

Many reading this have expected this for a long time now.
Australia is slowly catching up to the rest of the world.
Medical tyranny is manifesting.
WE will be FINE, and it is always important to remember that.
However, the NPC masses may not be so lucky. They will ultimately fall for this nonsense, charging towards the vaccine.
Overseas case studies paint a picture of the future direction planned here at home.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Countries all over the world have already been hard at work developing digital vaccination passports. Most are being developed for relaxation on restrictions of movement.
The European Union, for example, is set to make available its COVID vaccination passport for all EU citizens and residents by July 1.
The certificate is designed to allow freedom of movement within the EU, by allowing holders to avoid internal travel restrictions, such as entry bans and quarantine obligations.
In addition to travel, other countries have taken a further step and started using vaccination certificates for internal purposes, such as entry into restaurants and events.
Israel is a country that started a ‘green pass' system earlier this year, which allowed vaccinated people access to theatres, concert halls, indoor restaurants and bars.
People would show the pass on an app to gain entry to places. The app could also display proof someone had ‘recovered' from COVID-19.
In Australia, we are also discussing whether they can be used to open up interstate movement, which will depend on the agreement of state and territory authorities.
