COVID-19 digital certificates

Find out how to get your COVID-19 vaccination certificate, update it if it's incorrect, and show you are vaccinated even if you don't have a Medicare card.

Your COVID-19 digital certificate

After you have your second dose, we automatically generate a digital vaccination certificate for you. 

See Services Australia for full instructions on how to get proof of your COVID-19 vaccinations

You can see it in your Medicare account through:

You will need to link your myGov account to Medicare. 

You can save your digital certificate to your Apple Wallet or Google Pay if this option suits you.

You can also see your digital certificate in My Health Record.

If your information is missing or wrong

It may take up to 10 days for the certificate to show in your account. 

If you can't find it there, your vaccination provider can print your immunisation history statement for you. 

You can also call the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) and ask them to send your statement to you.

If your information is wrong, ask your vaccination provider to correct it with the AIR.

If you don't have a Medicare card

You can still get proof that you are vaccinated, even if you don't have a Medicare card. 

See Services Australia for details on how to get proof through the individual healthcare identifiers service. Services Australia provides this information in many community languages. 

If you were vaccinated overseas

If you receive a TGA-approved COVID-19 vaccine overseas, you can register your vaccination on the AIR when you return to Australia.

See Services Australia for more on how to register overseas vaccinations

See Smartraveller for advice on travel and COVID-19 vaccines
