Tech savvy teens help Noosa prepare vaccination certificates

A new tech support service is up and running at Noosa Libraries to help the community be prepared for the December 17 border re-opening.

Under the Queensland Government’s plan, everyone will be required to show their vaccine certificates via the Queensland Check-in app when visiting venues and facilities around the state.

Mayor Clare Stewart said loading the vaccine certificate into the Check in app can be technically challenging some people who don’t regularly use mobile apps.

“So we’ve called on the young technology talents being mentored at our Peregian Digital Hub, to help with support from our library staff,” she said.

“It is wonderful to see our young people step up to help with what can be a daunting task for many in our community.”

“Noosa is certainly ready to welcome back interstate visitors in December and we want to make sure that the community is well-prepared for the new regulations that come with that.”

Helpdesk kiosks have been established by the Noosaville and Cooroy Libraries with sessions available throughout the week.

The initiative is being project managed by recent USC graduate, Shelene Bailey (22), who is completing a summer internship at the Peregian Digital Hub.

“Sessions usually take around 30 minutes for each person we are helping,” she said.

The program is sponsored by Technology One, Australia’s leading enterprise SaaS company.

“We’re a proud supporter of the Peregian Digital Hub’s cadetship programs and it’s fantastic to see those young technologists putting their knowledge to use in service of others in the community” Technology One COO Stuart MacDonald said.
