Under what circumstances might I be medically exempt from being vaccinated against COVID-19?

The only reasons you might be able to get a medical exemption from having a vaccine are if you:

  • had anaphylaxis after a previous dose of a vaccine;
  • had anaphylaxis after a dose of any component of a vaccine; or
  • In rare circumstances where medical exemption cannot be recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register, but an expert or experts approved by the Chief Health Officer have provided advice about the need for an exemption.
