Fully Vaccinated Venue FAQs

AVM’s priority has always been the health and safety of their guests, and the decision to make their venues fully vaccinated has been made to protect against the spread of the virus, as well as to provide every chance of maintaining business continuity as we navigate the next stages of the COVID-19 roadmap and recovery.

You can find a list of some of their most commonly asked questions below.

Who needs to show proof of vaccination in order to enter Coopers Stadium?

Effective Tuesday, 23 November 2021, all persons aged 16 years and older entering Coopers Stadium including visitors, clients, contractors and suppliers, will need to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with a vaccine approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration. Proof of vaccination will be required in order to gain entry.

Individuals who are not able to provide proof of double COVID-19 vaccination, or do not hold a valid SA Health exemption will be denied entry. Venue bans apply for non-compliance.

What vaccines are accepted?

Visitors wishing to enter Coopers Stadium from Tuesday, 23 November 2021 must be vaccinated against COVID-19 with a vaccine approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration. 

If you are undergoing a current clinical trial relating to a COVID-19 vaccine, an official medical exception from SA Health is required, along with identification and proof of a negative COVID test result from the 72-hour period prior to seeking entry.

What is meant by fully vaccinated?

Fully vaccinated means having received two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration.

How do I show proof of vaccination?

To gain entry, patrons need to show their COVID-19 Digital Certificate on their smart device OR provide personal photo identification and printed immunisation certificate.

We will accept any of the following as proof of vaccination (see examples below):

  • COVID-19 Digital Certificate, available via your Medicare online account through myGOV or the Express Plus Medicare Mobile app.
  • ‘VaxCheck’ – Digital COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate integrated into the mySA Gov App
  • A printed immunisation history statement accompanied by proof of identification.

Proof of Digital Vaccination (examples):

How do I access the MySA GOV proof of vaccination?

From Tuesday, 23 November 2021, South Australians will be able to integrate their Digital COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate into their mySA Gov app (VaxCheck), making it easy to show their vaccination status where proof of vaccination is required. 

Once integrated, your COVID-19 Digital Certificate will appear in your mySA Gov app under ‘Credentials’ (the home page).

To integrate your COVID-19 Digital Certificate into the mySA Gov app, follow these simple steps. (Tip: Before you start, ensure all the relevant apps are updated)

  1. Ensure Medicare is linked to your myGov account
  2. Download the Express Plus Medicare app and sign in using your myGov details
  3. Select ‘Proof of Vaccinations’ and then ‘View history’
  4. Select ‘Share with check in app’ and then ‘mySA Gov’.

What steps do I need to complete upon arrival at Coopers Stadium?

To support social distancing and to ensure the safety of all guests, visitors are encouraged to arrive at the venue at least 20 – 30 minutes earlier than you would normally to allow additional time to complete the check in process. The following steps must be completed prior to entry:

1. Display your proof of COVID-19 vaccination

2.  Scan the SA Government QR Code and provide proof of check in (show the ‘green tick)

Note, if you have integrated your Digital COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate into the mySA Gov app and elected to simultaneously show vaccination status each time you check in to a location, these two steps will be completed at the same time.

I have a medical exemption for the COVID-19 vaccine. Can I still enter Coopers Stadium?

I am currently participating in a COVID-19 vaccine clinical trial. Is this covered by the entry requirements?

Following a change to South Australia’s emergency management direction on 8 December, 2021, please note that, effective immediately, participation in a COVID-19 vaccine clinical trial is no longer a valid exemption for not having a TGA approved COVID-19 vaccine. 

As such, any visitors who have previously arranged a SA Health medical exemption based on participation in a COVID-19 vaccine clinical trial will no longer be able to enter Coopers Stadium using this documentation. 

Can I attend an event at Coopers Stadium if I have had my first dose of COVID-19 vaccine and have an appointment booked for my second dose?

From Tuesday, 23 November 2021, the requirement for entry into Coopers Stadium is to be fully vaccinated, meaning you have had your two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration.

All visitors must show proof that they are fully vaccinated (i.e. have had two doses), or have an official SA Health medical exemption accompanied by a negative COVID test taken 72-hours prior to entry, to be granted entry.

I’ve chosen not to get vaccinated. Can I provide a negative COVID-19 test result to gain entry instead?

From Tuesday, 23 November 2021, the requirement for entry into Coopers Stadium is to be fully vaccinated, meaning you have had your two doses of a COVID-19 vaccine approved by the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration.

The only exception to this is if you have an official SA Health medical exemption, which will be noted on your official immunisation history or COVID-19 Digital Certificate. In this case, please present at entry along with proof of a negative COVID-19 test result taken in the 72-hour period prior to seeking entry. You will not be able to enter by simply showing a negative test result alone.

Am I still required to wear a mask when onsite?

Patrons are no longer required to QR code on entry to the Stadium and the requirement to wear masks once in the venue has been removed.

However, please note that you must QR code if going into an indoor space, and wear a mask as you move around in there, however masks are not needed in Corporate Suites or the Chairman’s as these constitute a private function.

Masks are required in the Coopers Bar and RAA Lounge.

I have tickets to an upcoming event at Coopers Stadium and can no longer attend. Who do I contact?
