Services Australia General Manager Hank Jongen has explained how to access confirmation of your COVID-19 vaccines.

Mr Jongen told Deborah Knight your immunisation history, including your COVID jabs, can be viewed and printed off through Medicare or MyHealthRecord – both of which you can install as apps on your smartphone.

“It’ll enable you to download the digital certificate, and … you can simply present it to anyone that might need you to verify that you’ve received both shots.”

He warned anyone who’s received a text message claiming to provide a certificate, for any amount of money, that such offers are a scam.

Real vaccine certificates can be verified by built-in security measures, though Services Australia are continuing to work on compatibility with state government systems.
