We’ve all worked together to keep Western Australia one of the safest places in the world.

Woman rolling her sleeve up to demonstrate that she has received a vaccine

To protect our lifestyle here in WA, there’s one more thing we need to do. We need to roll up our sleeves and get vaccinated for COVID-19.

The Vice-Chancellor Professor Harlene Hayne encourages all students to be immunised against COVID-19 to protect yourself, your family and the Curtin community.

Widespread vaccination is essential to Curtin offering a full campus experience with confidence, and to welcoming interstate and international students back into our Curtin community.

How do I book my COVID-19 vaccination?

If you’re eligible for your COVID-19 vaccination, you can now book your appointment online on the VaccinateWA website.

Am I eligible to receive a vaccine?

All Western Australians aged 16 years and over can now book a COVID-19 vaccination. To double check that you are eligible, you can visit the Australian Government’s Vaccine Eligibility Checker.

Do I have to pay for a COVID-19 vaccine?

In Australia, COVID-19 vaccinations are free for everyone, including international students. Vaccination providers cannot charge you for the COVID-19 vaccine or your appointments to receive the vaccine.

What if I don’t have a Medicare card?

If you don’t have a Medicare card, or are not eligible for Medicare, you can get a free vaccination at:

  • a Commonwealth Vaccination Clinic
  • state or territory vaccination clinic.
