Lotterywest Films - Proof of Vaccination Required
Patrons must continue to show proof of their COVID-19 vaccination status to enjoy a night under the stars at UWA Somerville. Anyone without proof of double-vaccination and without a valid exemption will be denied entry. Plan ahead by having your vaccination proof and a valid ID ready before you leave home. Remind your family and friends about these entry requirements so they can be prepared.
To help our staff assist your entry, please allow extra time by arriving early and bring your proof of vaccination and a valid ID or a valid medical exemption. We appreciate your patience and understanding and thank you in advance for your respect to our hardworking staff.
Acceptable forms of vaccination proof are:
• A COVID-19 digital certificate;
• A printed copy of the certificate;
• An immunisation history statement; or
• A medical exemption See the WA Government’s Proof of COVID-19 vaccinations page for more information.
We encourage people to get vaccinated as soon as possible. Discretionary exchanges or refunds may be considered if you have been in direct contact with someone with suspected COVID-19.
Staying COVID-safe is a shared responsibility and the most important thing is that everyone stay safe and healthy. If you have any concerns or are unable to attend Lotterywest Films as a result of these measures, please get in touch with us as soon as possible emailing our Box Office team.
