NSW residents complain about new vaccine passport app not working

  NSW residents complain about new vaccine passport app not working The system, which was made available overnight, allows NSW residents to prove they're double vaccinated at the same time as they check into venues. For those who have received both jabs and have the updated Service NSW app on their phones, their vaccine status will pop up when they check into a venue using the standard QR code process.Sydneysiders earlier had to scroll through their Medicare app or carry a paper certificate to prove to staff they'd been jabbed but now a green tick will appear whenever they sign into a business.

Unvaccinated Victorian will be virtually locked out of the economy when the state reopens and jab mandates will be introduced for all retail workers.

Premier Daniel Andrews on Sunday updated the state's roadmap as the state charges towards 80 and 90 double-dose vaccination.

From 6pm October 29, travel between Melbourne and the regions will resume, outdoor masks will be scrapped, and retail and gyms will reopen.

When the higher vaccination target is hit - forecast for November 24 - capacity limits for all venues and events will be dropped and masks will only be needed in high-risk indoor settings.

Fauci says vaccinated Americans can enjoy holiday gatherings together

  Fauci says vaccinated Americans can enjoy holiday gatherings together Fauci's recommendation comes just days after the CDC released guidance for celebrating holidays safely. He also argued that getting vaccinated is important for the everyone's safety.'I believe strongly that — particularly in the vaccinated people, if you're vaccinated and your family members are vaccinated, those who are eligible, that is obviously very young children and not yet eligible, that you can enjoy the holidays,' the immunologist said during an interview on This Week ABC.

But Mr Andrews said restrictions would only be lifted for the vaccinated, effectively banning those without two doses of a Covid jab from accessing personal services, dining out, or gathering in groups with friends.

As the state ramps up its vaccination rollout, the premier warned a new mandate will be introduced requiring all retail staff in Victoria to get vaccinated by 6.30pm on Friday.

'We will retain the vaccinated economy, all those requirements, although settings, where you only get in if you are double vaccinated, and you can tap and verify that for everybody,' Mr Andrews said.

'In fact, we will add to the vaccinated economy by asking and mandating that all non-essential retail will have to be vaccinated as well, both to go in, and also to work on those settings.'

Essential workers are already subject to vaccine mandates, with employees of dozens of industries are required to have their first dose by October 15 and be vaccinated by November 26 to keep working.

Some of the more than 80 job types in the mandate include cleaners, farmers, priests, journalists, judges, film crews, personal trainers, bottle shop attendants, and priests.

Retail staff who operate click and collect or delivery services have already been required to be vaccinated as they are considered essential workers.

The policy has been at the centre of raging debates as unions and some business groups back the move while it is criticised by others.

Last month, more than 40 NSW Police staff, including 34 officers, were stood down after refusing to get the jab by the October deadline.

They have been referred to Professional Standards Command for failing to abide by an instruction of the chief commissioner and face disciplinary action, which may include sacking.
