WE’RE NOT SAFE UNTIL WE’RE ALL SAFE
Updated Notice to Members from the Board of Directors and Management of The Royal Automobile Club of Australia Pty Ltd – As of 17th February 2022
The health and safety of our members, guests and staff is always the number one priority of your Club.
A decision has been made to continue our mandatory vaccination policy until at least March 31st with the Board to review the ever-evolving pandemic situation and any updates to Public Health Orders.
This means it will be a requirement for all members, guests, staff, contractors and suppliers to continue to be fully vaccinated (if over 16 years of age) or have a medical exemption to obtain entry to the Club.
The QR-code system of check-in with the Service NSW QR code for tracing purposes will also continue to apply. Your Club's sign-in systems are integrated with Service NSW to allow one seamless check in and Club sign-in experience.
We thank you for your understanding and mindfulness of these circumstances.
When this lockdown’s finished
And Just Infantry meets again,
I shall have two dozen oysters
Washed down with cold champagne.
Whilst revelling in the banter,
The teasing and the fun,
The sharing of experience
And the witty pun.
And when my bottle’s empty
And the World, it’s ills we’ve slain
I’ll have Kevin bring more oysters
Along with more champagne.
From Mr Michael Shave, RACA Member since 2012

Where can I access my proof of vaccination?

How can I get proof in hard copy?

- 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.
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.
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.
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).
Check-in card if you can’t check-in with your mobile phone
The COVID-19 check-in card is a printed card with a QR code unique to you that has your contact details. It means you can easily check-in when you visit a business, simply present your card to a staff member who will scan it for you.
The check-in card isn’t mandatory. It’s another way to check-in to businesses if you don't have a mobile, or if you find it difficult to check-in with your mobile.
Checking-in is the best way for NSW Health’s contact tracers to advise you if you have been at a location at the same time as a confirmed COVID-19 case.
Once you've created your card, it can be posted to you, or you can download a printable version to print out at home. If you need help getting your COVID-19 check-in card please call Service NSW on 13 77 88.
