How to find the date of your last COVID-19 vaccination

Staying up to date with your vaccinations

It’s important to stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccinations to make sure you’re best protected from the virus.

If you are aged 16 years or older, you can book now to receive a third dose (also known as a booster dose) of a COVID-19 vaccine.

As the cooler months approach, people who are at higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19 are eligible to receive a fourth dose winter booster of a COVID-19 vaccine, more than four months after receiving their third dose.

The Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI) recommends the following groups receive a winter booster:

  • Adults aged 65 years and older
  • Residents of aged care or disability care facilities
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 50 years and over
  • People aged 16 years and over with severe immunocompromised (refer to the ATAGI statement (external link). This group will be obtaining their fifth dose as part of their winter booster vaccine.

For more information, refer to ATAGI website (external link) or consult your GP or health professional.

Where can I see my vaccination doses?

The dates of your COVID-19 vaccinations are available on your COVID-19 digital certificate (including printed certificate), and on your immunisation history statement, which lists all the vaccinations you’ve had.

Your digital vaccination certificate and immunisation history statement documents are updated after each dose of COVID-19 vaccine received, and can be viewed by logging into your myGov (external link) account. You will need to have already linked your Medicare to your myGov account to access these.

If you have a smartphone, you can access your digital certificate using the Express Plus Medicare app or ServiceWA app. You certificate will show a ‘valid from’ date which will be the date of your last course of vaccination.

If you have trouble linking your Medicare to your MyGov (external link), you can visit the Services Australia website for help.

What if I am not eligible for Medicare?

If you are not eligible for Medicare, you can check your immunisation history through your My Health Record using your Individual Healthcare Identifier (IHI) (external link). If you don’t have an IHI, you can use the IHI service through myGov (external link) to apply for one and link it.

What do I do if the date of my last COVID-19 vaccine dose is missing or is incorrect?

It can take up to 10 days for your certificate to be updated to show that you have received a recent dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. If your COVID-19 vaccinations aren’t showing after 10 days, check with your provider to confirm they’ve updated your record.

If you need to update your details on your COVID-19 vaccination record, contact the provider that vaccinated you. Vaccination clinics and hubs can’t update your details unless you were vaccinated there.

If your provider can’t update your record, call the Australian Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809.
