Every Australian, including dentists for whom the ADA advocated to be included in the first round of vaccinations, who has received all of their required COVID-19 vaccine doses is now able to access the recently launched COVID-19 digital certificate.
The Minister for Government Services, Senator the Hon Linda Reynolds CSC, said the new record makes it simple and easy for people to show their COVID-19 vaccination status.
“The COVID-19 digital certificate makes proof of vaccination accessible anytime, anywhere,” Minister Reynolds said.
“We’re also giving people control over the level of vaccination history they share, as the certificate only shows your COVID-19 vaccination status. Once your provider has reported both doses of an approved vaccine, you’ll be able to access your COVID-19 digital certificate online through myGov or in the Express Plus Medicare app. I’m encouraging all Australians to ensure you’ve linked your Medicare account to myGov.”
