Verify your vaccination status

As part of our ongoing response to the pandemic, to minimise the risk of COVID‑19 to our community, the University is making COVID‑19 vaccinations a requirement for anyone attending our campuses. If you want to find out more, you can check the Vaccination at the University of Melbourne website.

Students who are scheduled to attend campus for approved essential activities (such as in-person assessments), or need to attend campus for a different reason, must validate their vaccination status. You need to provide evidence of vaccination status (whether you are fully vaccinated or hold a valid exemption).

Verify your vaccination status

Note: If you have already validated your status with the University, you don't have to do it again.

Not fully vaccinated yet?

If you are not fully vaccinated yet, organise your second vaccination for the earliest advisable distance from your first dose. More information, including how to book an appointment, is available on the Victorian Government's coronavirus website.

The University's Health Service is also a vaccination clinic. If you are an existing patient at the Health Service, you can book online. If you are not and existing patient, you can call (03) 8344 6904 to book your appointment.
