If you're the designated tech support in your family this might be a handy thread to bookmark.

Once you're fully vaccinated, here's how to add your digital vaccination certificate to the Service Victoria app.
First things first - make sure you've updated to the latest version of the Service Victoria app. Find the app in App Store or Google Play store and tap update.
Open up the Service Victoria app and tap on the option to "Add certificate via myGov". This will take you to login to myGov.
Scroll to ‘proof of COVID-19 vaccination’ and tap ‘Go to Medicare’
In myGov tap "view history" and then "Share with check in app"
You should see the Service Victoria app with a button saying "Share" next to it - tap on that.
Read the conditions, then tap "Accept and share"
Back in the Service Victoria app tap "Add certificate" - then you're good to go.
You can also add your certificate using the Express Plus Medicare app if you've got it installed.

And if you don't have Medicare, you can add your certificate using your Individual Healthcare Identifier in myGov.

You can find instructions for both at service.vic.gov.au/covid-19/add-c…
If you have difficulty with the Express Plus Medicare app or your myGov account you can contact the Commonwealth Government's hotline on 13 23 07.

On the advice of the Acting Chief Health Officer, today we are making a number of changes to slow the spread of the virus, vaccinate more Victorians, and protect our health system.
Through the pandemic, restrictions have been our primary weapon.

With the supply of vaccine finally becoming widely available, we're able to choose a different path - to protect workers who can't do their essential work from home, protect our health system, and our reopening.
On the advice of the Acting Chief Health Officer, and all authorised workers in Melbourne and regional Victoria will require their first COVID-19 vaccine dose by Friday 15 October in order to continue working onsite.

I won't sugar-coat it, today's numbers were hard.

This clearly isn't where we want to be - it's obvious this virus is moving fast, and we're racing against it's spread to protect our state.
I know you've heard it a thousand times, probably even more - but if we're going to stop this, you need to book a vaccine today, not tomorrow.

We've just announced that the interval between Pfizer doses will be reduced to just three weeks from the 4th of October.
That means you could get your first Pfizer dose next week, and be fully protected by the end of the month.

But if you can't get a spot at a state hub, check out your local pharmacy or GP.

So let this be your wake-up call - if you've put it off, book it in.

Today we are releasing our roadmap.

As well as laying out how we will deliver the National Plan, the roadmap lets Victorians know when we can catch up with friends and family, and get back to the things we love.
An accessible version of the summary, as well as the full roadmap will be available at premier.vic.gov.au shortly.
Here are some of the key things you need to know.

Restrictions will ease as more Victorians are vaccinated, with one important condition:

To ensure the health system isn't overrun any easing will be subject to health system capacity and current public health advice.

There's a million reasons to get vaccinated - but for me, it's Mum.

She still lives out in Wang, not far from where I grew up.

I love her, and I think about her every day.

Even if this pandemic means I can't see her as much as I'd like, I still want to know that she's safe.
And I want to be sure that when I do visit, I'm not potentially putting her at risk.

I have my reason, you will have yours, and the million or so people reading this will have theirs too.

Maybe it's your own mum, maybe you want to go overseas, or see those you've missed.
Walk into a pub without a mask, a party inside, or have all your mates for dinner.

Everyone has time they've lost. Places we've forgotten. Experiences we'll go without.

But there's one reason we all want to get vaccinated - for this pandemic to be over.

Just wanted to give everyone an update. Thanks to the best of care, I’m making slow and steady progress.

A couple of weeks ago when I started daily walks, I could only manage about 15 minutes – now I’m out for almost an hour.
My physio is also going well, but it’s clear I won’t be able to return to work before the State Budget in May. The good news is my team of specialists are confident that I will be back in June.
You only get one chance to properly recover from serious injuries and while it’s frustrating to be away from work, there is no alternative.

We just have to wait until the ribs and spinal fracture have properly healed.
