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 certificates 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.
You can use our tool to find the best proof for your situation. It can depend on how many doses you’ve had.
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.
If you’re affected by family and domestic violence, and having proof of your COVID-19 vaccinations causes you safety concerns, there’s support available. Any of our staff can help you access the safest option for your circumstances. For support getting your proof, call the Australian Immunisation Register or visit your local service centre.
