Important vaccination information

You should not attend a COVID-19 vaccination appointment if you:

  • Have a fever, cough, runny nose, or other symptoms that could be COVID-19
  • Are waiting for COVID-19 test results
  • Have tested positive with COVID-19 and are in isolation
  • Are a close contact of someone with COVID-19.

If you have had another vaccine in the 14 days before your COVID-19 vaccine appointment, you should tell your immunisation provider.

At your appointment you will need your Medicare card and photo ID, as well as your employee ID if you are getting a COVID-19 vaccine because of your occupation.

If you are not an existing patient of the clinic you are visiting, you may need to provide your medical history. Contact the clinic before your appointment to check the requirements.

After you receive the vaccination, you will be required to stay in the clinic for at least 15 minutes to ensure you don’t have a negative reaction.

You will be able to get proof of vaccination from your Medicare immunisation history through myGov, or by calling Medicare on 1800 653 809.
