This article explains how immunisation information, including COVID-19 immunisation status details, can be accessed in My Health Record.
To view immunisations in My Health Record, you must have My Health Record correctly configured at your practice.
View immunisation information
All immunisation information available in My Health Record can be viewed via the Immunisation Consolidated View. The Immunisation Consolidated View draws immunisation information from the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR), Shared Health Summaries and Event summaries, to provide a snapshot of all immunisation information for a patient in one place.
Can the Immunisation Consolidated View be used as evidence of COVID-19 vaccination?
Some organisations may accept a printed version of the Immunisation Consolidated View as evidence that a patient has been vaccinated against COVID-19. Otherwise, patients can access their immunisation history online, which they can use as proof of immunisation.
Access the Immunisation consolidated view
- From the patient's clinical record, select My Health Record > View Document List, or click the My Health Record button. The Document List will appear.
- Double-click Immunisation Consolidated View. The Immunisation Consolidated View will open.
Four navigation panels will display at the top of the Immunisation Consolidated View:
- Australian Immunisation Register
- Shared Health Summary
- Event Summary.
Australian Immunisation Register
Select Australian Immunisation Register to view all vaccine information for the patient that has been uploaded My Heath Record via the AIR. This view will display by default. If no immunisation information for the patient has been uploaded to the AIR, this link will not be available.
COVID-19 immunisation status
The COVID-19 Immunisation Status field in the Australian Immunisation Register view provides COVID-19 vaccination information for the patient at a glance.
Patient COVID-19 Vaccination Status

The Australian Immunisation Register view also displays when the next dose of a vaccine is due if applicable, and any additional immunisation-related information about the patient that has been uploaded to the AIR.
Select Immunisations to view vaccine information for the patient that has been uploaded to My Health Record via the AIR, as well as via Shared Health Summaries and Event Summaries. This view will display by default if no information has been uploaded to the AIR.
NOTE If an immunisation has been uploaded to My Health Record via the AIR and via a shared Health Summary or Event Summary, it will be listed twice.
Shared Health Summary and Event Summary
Select either Shared Health Summary or Event Summary to view the patient's latest Shared Health Summary or Event Summary that contains immunisation information.
