Our comprehensive information campaign will keep Australians fully informed and up to date about how and where to get the jab. As part of our public information campaign, we've invested in a program for peak multicultural organisations to help reach culturally and linguistically diverse communities. This includes advertising in 32 languages. Our message will target specific multicultural groups to ensure everyone in Australia has a full understanding of the vaccination program. The overall national campaign includes regular website updates, social media, local community and grassroots organisations, networks and of course the media.

There are three steps that Australians can take now to get ready: create a myGov account and link it to Medicare; check your contact details for Medicare and ensure they are up to date; and view your immunisation history record. (Time expired)
