Further information about digital certificates to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination in Australia
In Australia you can obtain proof of your vaccinations recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register from different government sources, including My Health Record.
The COVID-19 digital certificate shows your COVID-19 vaccinations, and is only available after you have had all required doses of a vaccine approved for use in Australia. Your vaccination provider will add all your doses to the Australian Immunisation Register before you can get your certificate.
How you get proof depends on your situation. This includes if you need to create a myGov account, link services or enrol in Medicare. Find the best way to get proof of your COVID-19 vaccinations for your situation.
To obtain COVID-19 vaccination proof through My Health Record you need to link it to your myGov account. The National Allergy Strategy has developed a fact sheet to explain how to get set up with My Health Record.
