It’s easy to prove you’re fully vaccinated against COVID-19 – here’s how

**Updated 19 November 2021**

The COVID-19 pandemic has been an immensely challenging time for everyone – but Victoria is not far from achieving the all-important vaccination milestones that will enable us to begin opening up and enjoying a much more normal 2022.  

We all want Deakin to be the safest possible environment for study and work. With this in mind, we’re setting out to ensure that Deakin will be a fully vaccinated study and work environment for all staff and students, and we strongly encourage you to get vaccinated as soon as you’re eligible. 

Being vaccinated not only helps to protect you, your loved ones and your community, it will also give you access to a much wider range of University activities, including on-campus classes and events. 

How to prove you’re vaccinated 

There are two ways to show you’re fully vaccinated against COVID-19: 

You’ll still be able to access your digital certificate or immunisation statement even if you have opted out of My Health Record, as the AIR is a separate database. 

Saving the COVID-19 digital certificate to your ServiceVictoria app

You can also attach your digital vaccine certificate to the Service Victoria app, which you will already be using to check in to shops and other venues. When you check-in, you’ll get one tick for checking in and another tick that shows your certificate is valid. 

Get proof of your COVID vaccinations: Create a myGov account. Link your Medicare online account to myGov. Download the Medicare app. View your immunisation history statement or COVID-19 digital certificate (once you're fully vaccinated). Save your COVID-19 digital certificate to your Apple Wallet or Google Play.

How to get proof of your COVID-19 vaccinations

Follow the steps in the diagram above:

Then, to complete saving your COVID-19 certificate to your ServiceVictoria app:

More information is available at ServiceVictoria.

If you don’t have a smartphone

You can also print your COVID-19 digital certificate available on My Health Record. 

If you’re not eligible for Medicare

If you’re not eligible for Medicare, you need an Individual Healthcare Identifier (IHI) to access your vaccination status online. You can get an IHI through myGov. 

You don’t need an IHI to get vaccinated – only to prove that you’ve been vaccinated.
