I just received the second shot of the COVID-19 immunisation and received my COVID-19 certificate. I also found out that you can download the COVID-19 digital certificate and store it on Google Pay. You may have received a printed certificate when you completed the second dose or jab but who is going to carry this with them all the time. In this modern age, it needs to be all digital.
The first step is to make sure you are able to login to Medicare and you will need a myGov account to do this. Once you are able to login to Medicare you can click on the Medicare icon under your services
- Click on Immunisation History
- At the bottom click on View COVID-19 digital certificate (PDF)
- The PDF certificate will be displayed.
You can download this or print it off. Using the web browser you won’t be able to add the certificate to Google Pay.
MOBILE APP (GOOGLE PLAY)
You can use the Medicare app to download or add the COVID-19 digital certificate. If you don’t have the app, you can search and download it from Google Play. It’s called Express Plus Medicare
- Once the Express Plus Medicare app is installed you need to Sign in.
- Once you successfully sign in, tap on
- Tap on view digital certificate
- Tap on Save to Phone
- Tap on accept
- Tap on just once when asked Open with Googple Play
- Tap on Continue
- You can read all the terms and conditions or just tap I agree
- Tap on Next
- If you want to add the certificate to your home screen tap on add shortcut or press skip
- If you decided to add the COVID Digital certificate to your home screen tap add automatically
- You can then view the certificate from the home screen
- When you login to Google Pay, you will also see it listed at the bottom
That’s it. You will be able to view your certificate securely using Google Pay. Hope this helps, if you don’t plan to get your COVID-19 vaccinee that’s OK too since it’s a personal choice. Good luck and hope for the best.
