  3. Select View history.
  4. Select your name, then Share with check in app.

If you’re not eligible for Medicare, you can use the Individual Healthcare Identifiers service through myGov.

Follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to your myGov account using a browser on your device.
  2. Select Individual Healthcare Identifiers service.
  3. Select View immunisation history.
  4. Select Share with check in app.

If you’re using your Medicare online account through myGov, you’ll need to use iOS 13 or later to share your certificate.

How to unlink your digital certificate from a state or territory check in app

After adding your digital certificate to a state or territory check in app, you can choose to stop sharing your vaccination status.

You can do this by unlinking your digital certificate using either:

  • the Express Plus Medicare mobile app
  • your Medicare online account through myGov
  • the Individual Healthcare Identifier service through myGov.

Follow the steps for adding your digital certificate to the state or territory check in app and select Share with check in app. Choose a state or territory check in app to unlink your certificate with and select Unlink certificate.

Unlinking your digital certificate will withdraw your consent to share your vaccination status with the check in app.

Unlinking won’t remove your digital certificate from the check in app. You’ll need to go to the check in app you’ve shared your digital certificate with, and remove it yourself.
