Supporting COVID-19 vaccinations
Telstra #LetsVaxx: our plan to reward customers
We’re showing our support for Australia’s COVID-19 vaccination program. From late September, we’re offering Telstra customers two ways to be rewarded, on us. We’ll let you know once the offers are available via My Telstra and Telstra Plus. This is an online only offer.

Showing your support
During this global health emergency, we need to come together – just as we’ve always done in the face of natural disasters and other hardships. Now, we hope to encourage Australians to come together and get vaccinated.
Getting vaccinated will make an incredible difference. We believe it will help us protect each other – especially the vulnerable amongst us - lessen the financial burden on families, and turn around the toll on our wellbeing caused by the uncertainty and isolation of lockdowns.
We also believe the vaccination program will support all Australians by continuing to keep us safe, so we can return to the way of life we love sooner, and start looking forward to a healthier economy.
We’ve been part of Australian life for over 100 years, and this is our way of saying ‘thank you’ for doing your part.
Telstra Plus care package
Many Australians are still in lockdown, so all Telstra Plus members, regardless of vaccination status, can redeem a digital care package on us.
Coming soon: two ways to be rewarded

We'll also be launching our digital care package for all Telstra Plus members, regardless of vaccination status, which includes:

We'll have more information coming soon, so stay tuned!

From late September, you can claim your points, simply by adding your digital certificate document number. Once you’ve done that, an additional 2,500 Telstra Plus points will automatically be added onto your account balance.
