Get proof of your COVID-19 vaccinations if you’re not eligible for Medicare

7 June 2021

If you’re not eligible for Medicare, you can still get proof of your COVID-19 vaccinations online.

When you get a COVID-19 vaccine, your health provider makes a record of it on the Australian Immunisation Register.

You can get a record of all the vaccines you’ve had that are on the register. We call this record your immunisation history statement. You can use your immunisation history statement as proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status.

If you need your immunisation history statement, you can get it through myGov.

To do this, you need an Individual Healthcare Identifier (IHI) and to link the IHI service to your myGov account.

You’ll need to create a myGov account if you don’t have one.

We need to verify your identity to give you an IHI, so you’ll need one of the following identity documents:

  • your passport, with your valid Australian Visa
  • your Australian driver licence.

To get an IHI and link the IHI service to your myGov account:

  1. Go to myGov and sign in.
  2. Select services or link your first service.
  3. Select IHI service from the list.
  4. Follow the prompts.

Once we’ve verified your identity, we’ll use your details to create your IHI. We’ll also link the IHI service to your myGov account. Then you can use the IHI service to view your immunisation history statement.
