OSHCstudents – COVID-19 vaccines are free for everyone in Australia regardless of Medicare or visa status. Find out how to access a COVID-19 vaccination if you are not eligible for Medicare.
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.
- state or territory vaccination clinic.
The vaccine is voluntary, and everyone is encouraged to get a vaccine to help protect the community from COVID-19.
If you are not eligible for Medicare, providers can still supply COVID-19 vaccines to you, but cannot bill for this service (Medicare or otherwise).
Please check with your usual practice for where you can access the vaccine from. The vaccine will be delivered free of charge.
