Determining Your Eligibility for a COVID Vaccine

Who will be eligible to receive the vaccine?

To check which phase you will likely be vaccinated in, click the following link from Australian Government:

The Australian Government has announced that COVID-19 vaccination eligibility has been expanded, and will be available and free for all people living in Australia, including:

  • all Medicare-eligible Australians
  • all visa-holders, including refugees, asylum seekers, temporary protection visa holders, and those on bridging visas
  • people currently residing in detention facilities, including those whose visas have been cancelled. 

Due to the current funding model, people who are not eligible for Medicare will be unable to receive the vaccine through a general practice clinic. Access will be via state/territory managed vaccination clinics. Further details will be shared when available.

While the Australian Government strongly supports vaccination, it is not mandatory and individuals may choose not to vaccinate.
