COVID-19 Vaccine resources for international students

News story

Did you know that in Australia, COVID-19 vaccinations are free for everyone, including international students?

Patient receiving a vaccine from a health care worker

Vaccination providers cannot charge students for the COVID-19 vaccine or your appointments to receive the vaccine. If students don’t have a Medicare card, or are not eligible for Medicare, they can get a 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.
