Preparing for your vaccination
Before your vaccination appointment, you should make sure your details are up to date with Medicare.
If you don't have your account set up, you can:
enrol in Medicare, if you're not already enrolled
set up your Medicare online account if you're enrolled in Medicare, but don't have Medicare linked to myGov, or
get an Individual Health Identifier (IHI), if you're not eligible for Medicare.
Please note, if you don't have a Medicare card, or are not eligible for Medicare, you can get your free vaccination at a Commonwealth Vaccination Clinic or a state or territory vaccination clinic.
