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.

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 about children under 16 years of age?

Children under 16 years of age visiting Coopers Stadium must be accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult.

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)

Please note:

  • Children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult.
  • SA Health has directed Stadium Management to implement a series of COVID Safe measures with all patrons required to comply without exception, including the wearing of masks. All patrons shall be strictly required to wear a face mask at all times (excluding children under 12), unless you have a medical exemption for which evidence must be produced upon request. Masks may only be removed whilst eating or drinking in your allocated seat. You are requested to bring your own reusable mask.

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?

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.

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?

SA Health has directed that Stadium Management implement a series of COVID Safe measures with all patrons required to comply without exception. This includes the wearing of masks.

All patrons are required to wear a face mask when entering and moving around the Stadium at all times (excluding children under 12), unless you have a medical exemption for which evidence must be produced upon request. Masks may only be removed while you are seated in your allocated reserved seat. You are requested to bring your own reusable mask.

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