A loophole allowing unvaccinated Australians to fraudulently gain access to services only available to the double-jabbed has emerged in one state's Covid check-in app.

Queenslanders can also add their family and friends' immunisation status, but the feature could be used by the unvaccinated to pose as someone else.
While a MyGov account is needed, the Queensland check-in app allows dependents and family members to be added to your account as a guest.
