COVID-19 vaccinations

We encourage everyone living in the Australian community to get immunised. This is in line with health advice.

Everyone in Australia can get a COVID-19 vaccine free of charge, including Australian visa holders, non-citizens who do not hold a valid visa and people living in immigration detention facilities.

When people in Australia are vaccinated, information about their immigration or citizenship status is not collected.

You don’t need to be eligible for or enrolled with Medicare to receive a free COVID-19 vaccination. To find a clinic where you don’t need a Medicare card, use the COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Checker.

For more information about the COVID-19 vaccine program, see the Department of Health.
