Proof of double-dosed vaccination for people aged 16 and over will be required at a range of venues across Western Australia as part of its “Safe Transition Plan”.

This extends to all hospitality venues including cafes, bars, pubs, and clubs, and will come into effect on January 31.

Takeaway from venues such as restaurants, cafes, and service stations will be exempt.

People visiting indoor entertainment venues, such as play centres, theatres, cinemas and gyms, will also need to show proof of vaccination.

The rules will also apply to attendees at music festivals and large events with more than 500 people.

The new requirements mean unvaccinated people will not be able to enter venues, dine in, or attend large events.

“It will become very difficult for the unvaccinated,” Premier Mark McGowan said.

“You’re choosing your risk and you would choose to increase the burden on our health [system].”

Mr McGowan said he has learnt from the “disaster” in New South Wales when proof of vaccination requirements were removed in December.

“These are the broadest proof of vaccine in the nation and they will not be removed anytime soon,” Mr McGowan said.
