My Vaccine Pass is an official record of a person’s COVID-19 vaccination status and will provide access to places within New Zealand that require proof of vaccination under the new COVID-19 Protection Framework.
It is your official proof of vaccination and a ticket to enjoy the extra freedoms that will come with the COVID-19 Protection Framework. To get one, people will need to be fully vaccinated or be one of the very small number of Kiwis who has received a medical exemption.
The pass will be issued by the Ministry of Health. People can log onto My COVID Record to make a request for the free pass or call 0800 222 478.
My Vaccine Pass has a QR code that can be scanned upon arrival at a venue. The pass can be downloaded to your personal phone and stored in your Apple or Google Wallet, or may be printed out.

We at Armageddon fully support the policy to be fully vaccinated to attend large scale events, but please note that this will likely be a legal requirement anyway, and it is clear that if you wish to enjoy mass events and gatherings in NZ going forward, you will need to be vaccinated, and should do so now if you have not already. 

 

Don't forget, Armageddon is only able to run in Orange and Green under the Covid-19 Protection Framework. While the city is in Orange, face coverings will be recommended but not required at Armageddon.
