OSHCstudents – The Australian Government is committed to ensuring everyone in Australia will have access to the vaccination when it’s their turn – this includes international students who are studying in Australia.
Vaccines for everyone in Australia
COVID-19 vaccines will be free for everyone living in Australia. You will not need a prescription from a GP to get vaccinated.
If you don’t have a Medicare card, or are not eligible for Medicare, you can still get a COVID-19 vaccine.
Book or register for COVID-19 vaccination
Use the Eligibility Checker to find out when you can receive a vaccine. If you are eligible, you will be able to view vaccination locations and book an appointment.
If you are not yet eligible, you will be able to register your interest so that you can be notified when you are able to book.
Will I be able to choose where I can book?
If you are eligible to book, you will be able to view and select clinic locations based on the location you enter.
What happens if there are no clinics or appointments in my area?
More appointments will become available as more clinics come on-board, and more vaccine becomes available. People are encouraged to continue to check the vaccine clinic finder each week if they cannot secure a suitable appointment at this stage.
