COVID-19 vaccines

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

COVID-19 vaccines are free for everyone in Australia, including:

  • Australian visa holders
  • overseas visitors
  • international students
  • migrant workers
  • asylum seekers, and
  • people who don’t hold a valid visa.

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.
