How to check your COVID-19 vaccine status

Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination will be recorded on your immunisation history statement after you’ve had your vaccine. Once you have received all required doses, you will also be able to access your COVID-19 digital certificate.

You can get proof of your COVID-19 vaccination online and save it to your digital wallet.

How you get access depends if you have a Medicare Card (for those eligible for Medicare) or Individual Health Identifier (for those not eligible for Medicare).
