Create a myGov account and link Medicare to get proof of COVID-19 vaccinations

16 September 2021

If you haven’t already, create a myGov account and link Medicare. Then you can access your proof of vaccination online if you need it.

All you need to create a myGov account is an email address. Once you create your myGov account, select Link a service then select Medicare from the list to link Medicare.

We’ll ask you for some details to make sure we match the correct Medicare record to your myGov account.

They can include any of these:

  • your Medicare card number
  • your Medicare payment history
  • your bank account details registered with Medicare.

Once you’ve linked Medicare, you can access your vaccination history. Open Medicare and select Immunisation history.

If you get an error while trying to link, read common error messages when linking Medicare to myGov to find out how to correct it.
