COVID-19 vaccination if you don't have a Medicare card
COVID-19 vaccination is free for everyone in Australia, even if you don't have a Medicare card. Learn more about how to book a vaccination.
Vaccines are free for everyone
Your Medicare or visa status does not matter – you can still get a free COVID-19 vaccination. We encourage everyone to get vaccinated to help protect the community from COVID-19.
The ATAGI recommended doses and vaccines outlines which vaccines and doses are recommended for each age and population group.
Where you can get vaccinated without a Medicare card
There are many places where you can get your free vaccination. Use the vaccine clinic finder to find the best place for you.
If you are not eligible for Medicare, general practice providers can still supply COVID-19 vaccines to you, but cannot bill you for this service (Medicare or otherwise). Your GP may ask you to get your vaccination at a Commonwealth Vaccination Clinic, a state-run or territory-run vaccination clinic, or a pharmacy.
