Vaccine passports for international travel will be available from tomorrow.
The system is live in the Medicare app. You’ll need valid PP info to proceed. I didn’t click through but curious what it gives you?

A QR code for 10% off duty free hopefully as well as a QR code to say that I’ve been vaccinated :)

I've received the QR certificate but surely you don't need to enter passport details every single time? Or is it now attached somehowe electronically to the passport and I don't need to use the Medicare app again. I've shared the other certificate with NSW and Vic Heslth. SA is running a bit late.

I saved it to my phone so I can pull it up at any time

If you lose the certificate, yes you will need to re-enter your passport details on the Medicare site to create a new one. It doesn't store them in any central location (it can be cryptographically verified with the QR code's data, but the actual "plaintext" of the passport information is not centrally stored).
