Matchday Information 2021/22

We look forward to welcoming you to the DAM Health Stadium.

COVID-19

  • Stadium Access

    As with previous matches, fans over the age of 18 should be prepared to show proof they are fully vaccinated (or are otherwise exempt*) or provide evidence of a negative lateral flow result taken within the previous 24 hours of entry to the ground (showing the confirmation email / text from the Scottish Government that follows a registered result).

    Full information on proof of vaccination can be found HERE on the Scottish Government website, including accepted certificates and exemptions. You can also get a copy of your vaccine status by phoning the COVID-19 Status Helpline on 0808 196 8565. The helpline is open every day from 10am to 6pm.

    *Exemptions are made for those who are, a) unable to get the vaccine for medical reason, or b) taking part in vaccine trials.

    What counts as 'fully vaccinated'?

    To be considered fully vaccinated, a person must have had a booster, if 120 days have passed since their primary course of a MHRA vaccine.

    How do I get my Vaccine Passport?

    You can download the NHS Covid App https://www.nhsinform.scot/covid-status or get a paper copy of your vaccine from NHS Inform.
