How do I obtain and upload my proof of Vaccination?

If you have received your COVID-19 vaccination, you will need to upload proof to the Like Family website.

Obtaining Proof of Vaccination

You can download a copy of your vaccination certificate via your Medicare online account through myGov. If you do not have a Medicare online or myGov account, you will need to set them up by following the directions provided here.

Step 1: Log in to your myGov account

If you have linked your Medicare online account to your myGov account as directed above, you will find a useful quick link on the main dashboard, directing you to your "Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination".

A black arrow points at a box called "Proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Go to Medicare" at the bottom left of the myGov dashboard

Step 2: View your immunisation history

Once you are redirected to Medicare online, click "View history". This will allow you to view your entire immunsiation history, in addition to the digital certificate Like Family requires for proof of vaccination.

A black arrow points at a green button with the label "View history". This in a section titled "Immunisation history"

Step 3: View your COVID-19 digital certificate

If you have multiple people linked to your Online Medicare Account, you will need to verify whose document you wish to view. For privacy reasons, anyone over the age of 14 is able to download their own certificate.
