Govt Rolls Out Covid-19 Vaccine Certificate
More than 100 days since Australia’s vaccine rollout started, the Federal Government is launching a portal that will provide information on who exactly has received the jab.
While most Australians can view their vaccination history via a Medicare number following a Covid jab, those having the second inoculation will be able to get a certificate.
From July, all national vaccination program providers will be required to report, where practicable, within 24 hours and no later than 10 days when a vaccination has been given to an individual in Australia.
The database, the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR), is maintained by Services Australia on behalf of the Department of Health and IBM Hybrid Cloud has been selected to prepare it.
It will provide a record of vaccination that can be available on a smartphone or as a print-out from Services Australia.
