As the Mid North Coast opens up for business and return travel to the region from all areas of the state is imminent, many venues will be asking to see proof of COVID-19 vaccination or medical exemption when residents check in.
"With such a great community response to the call to get vaccinated, we would love to see Mid North Coast residents move around with confidence and know they have the relevant vaccination documents on hand," said Healthy North Coast CEO, Julie Sturgess.
"Each of us is responsible for accessing our own vaccination record and having it available if proof is needed. This is not something our doctor does for us.
"The quickest way to do this is through your myGov account, where you can download or print your vaccination certificate, or store it on your smartphone, tablet or state check-in app."
You can also have a paper certificate posted to you, by ordering it from the Australian Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809 (8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday), but this can take up to two weeks to arrive.
"If you haven't organised your certificate already, I encourage you to get online or on the phone as soon as possible, so we can start enjoying our great region and supporting local businesses again," Ms Sturgess said.
Mid North Coast residents who haven't yet had a chance to get vaccinated can book online through the Vaccine Clinic Finder.
