As more of Australia comes out of lockdown, talks of providing proof of vaccination are becoming the norm.
To help ease you out of lockdown and into freedom, we’ve provided you a handy little guide on how to access your digital certificate on your phone.
This is only available for those who have had both injections, but you can still follow the steps to access your immunisation history and be prepared for when you’ve had your second.
If you have a Medicare card, your COID-19 Digital Certificate can be found here by logging into the press Plus Medicare app or Medicare online account via MyGov.
If you’re now of the age where you can’t be on your parent’s card anymore and you now need your own - click here.
For the Express app, simply login and under “services” you’ll see immunization history. This will provide you with all your past injections and allow you to access your COVID-19 Digital Certificate.
For MyGov, follow the below…
If you don't have Medicare, you can add your COVID-19 Digital Certificate on your phone using the Individual Healthcare Identifiers service (IHI service).
Never fear! If you certificate hasn’t shown up yet, but you’re fully vaccinated, there’s nothing to worry about. According to the Digital Health website, it can take a few days to appear.
However, if nothing is showing after 10 days call the Australian Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809 (Monday to Friday 8 am to 5 pm) and ask them to send your immunisation history statement to you. It can take up to 14 days to arrive in the post.
