New features added to Check-in Tas App

New features added to Check-in Tas App

With just one month to go until Tasmania reopens its borders, The State Government say they are continuing to implement a range of initiatives to better prepare ourselves to safely and responsibly reconnect Tasmania.
 
“We know COVID-19 will arrive in Tasmania at some point which is why we have added additional features to our Check in TAS app.” Said Health Minister Jeremy Rockliff.
 
“From today, the app will enable fully vaccinated users to share their COVID-19 vaccination Digital Certificate to their Check in TAS app.”
 
“This upgrade is now live and available for download on Apple iOS devices, with Android functionality expected to be available on Google store over the next 24-48 hours.”
 
To use this new function, it is an easy 4 step process:
 

  1. Upgrade your Check in TAS app to the latest version (some devices will do this automatically, others will ask you to upgrade manually);
  2. You will then need to access your COVID-19 Vaccination Digital Certificate through either your Medicare online account, MyGov, or through the Express Plus Medicare app;
  3. Select to share your COVID-19 vaccination digital certificate with Check in TAS; and
  4. You will then be directed to the Check in TAS app to click ‘accept’ to add the digital certificate to your profile, which will be shown as a ‘green tick’ next to your name on the Check in TAS home page.

“It is important to note that your digital vaccination certificate information is not stored by the Department of Health in the Check in TAS app, it is only stored on your own smart device.” Said Mr Rockliff.
 
“We encourage everyone to update their Check in TAS apps and add their COVID-19 Digital Certificate.”
 
“As we move forward with our plan to reopen Tasmania, this Digital Certificate will then be able to be used at certain events where vaccination is a requirement and is likely to also be used for our border check processes.”
 
“Tasmanians have done a great job of continuing to get vaccinated to protect themselves, their loved ones and their community, there are still some cohorts that are lagging.”
 
“We want every eligible Tasmanian over the age of 12 to have had the opportunity to be vaccinated, so they are protected and safe when we reopen on December 15, and we continue to work with those cohorts.”
 
“Our primary message remains that wherever safe to do so, our best protection against this virus is to go and get vaccinated.”
