GETTING PROOF OF VACCINATION

You can log onto your myGov account to get either:

  • an Immunisation History Statement - this shows all the immunisations you’ve had that are on the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR).

  • COVID-19 digital certificate - this only shows your COVID-19 vaccinations. You’ll be able to get your digital certificate after you’ve had all required doses of a vaccine as approved for use in Australia.

 

The GP provider needs to input your vaccination details to the AIR so you can get proof. This can take a few days.
