The COVID-19 vaccine is voluntary and free and your information and privacy are strictly protected.

As safe and effective vaccines become available the Government will vaccinate as many people in Australian as possible for COVID-19. If you choose not to have a COVID-19 vaccine your eligibility for Government payments won't be affected.

We have taken steps to ensure the implementation of the COVID-19 Vaccine and Treatment Strategy is compliant with the Privacy Act 1988 and the secrecy provisions of the Australian Immunisation Register Act 2015.
