What types of proof there are
There are different ways to show proof of your COVID-19 vaccinations that are all free.
There are 3 ways to show proof of your vaccinations:
- your COVID-19 digital certificate which shows proof of only your COVID-19 vaccinations that you can add to a digital wallet
- your immunisation history statement which shows your COVID-19 vaccinations and all other vaccinations
- your International COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate which shows proof of only your COVID-19 vaccinations when you want to travel overseas.
Remember, you can print your own certificate or statement when you download your proof online. You don't need to call for a copy.
Once you’ve had all your required doses, you can add your COVID-19 digital certificate to your digital wallet. You can also share your digital certificate with a state or territory check in app.
If you're using the Express Plus Medicare mobile app, you can save your proof to your offline files in the app.

Your vaccination provider needs to report your vaccinations to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) before it appears on your proof. It can take your vaccination provider up to 10 days to update the AIR.
Use your COVID-19 digital certificate to show proof of only your COVID-19 vaccinations when in Australia. You can also add it to your digital wallet.
