We wish to inform our community that Canterbury-Hurlstone Park RSL Club Group has made the decision to extend the requirement of mandatory proof of COVID-19 vaccination (or medical exemption) as a condition of entry for staff and patrons (16 & Over) beyond 15 December 2021, and will review the situation in January 2022. This will apply to all of our hospitality venues.

Whilst the government continue to change restrictions in the hospitality industry, and Clubs will still be required to facilitate QR code check ins beyond 15 December 2021, we do not believe that this is the right time to remove the requirement for proof of COVID-19 Vaccination (or exemption).

With the emergence of the new ‘Omicron’ strain of COVID-19, and the ongoing uncertainty of the impact it may have, coupled with varied rates of vaccination in our local communities, we are taking this proactive step to maintain proof of COVID-19 vaccination until at least January 2022.

After engaging with our membership and our staff, we believe that this decision will be favoured by an overwhelming majority of our community, and that it is in the best interests of the health and safety of our staff, members and patrons at this time. We will continue to monitor the situation to determine when it will be appropriate for us to remove the policy.

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 attend the club the Monday after NSW reaches the 70 per cent double-dose milestone.

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.

What if I can’t get vaccinated?

Subject to the legislation which mandates vaccinations, people who can’t be vaccinated with any approved vaccine may be permitted to enter the club if they obtain a “contraindication certificate” in the approved form.  

Please consult your medical practitioner for further information. We will only be permitted to accept a medical exemption in the approved form.

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 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.

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 an offence to falsify this information. Only Government issued vaccination verification documents can be accepted.

Where can I find more information?
