Entering Australia - Covid vaccination etc

Hi,

I'm going to Australia this weekend. I have my paper Covid vaccination certificate but when I go into my flight booking to check requirements it says there's an international vaccination cert I need?

www.passports.gov.au/international-covid-19-vaccination-certificate

I'm not sure if that's just for Aus residents though as it mentions Medicare? Is my UK paper vaccination certificate enough?

Thanks

Proof of vaccination status

You must present proof that you have been fully vaccinated to enter Australia.

If you were vaccinated in Australia, you should use an International COVID-19 Vaccine Certificate (ICVC) generated by Services Australia. If you were vaccinated outside of Australia, you can use a foreign vaccination certificate. See the requirements for foreign vaccination certificates from the Australian Department of Health.

Australia will accept the UK’s proof of COVID-19 vaccination record and proof of COVID-19 vaccination issued in the Crown Dependencies. Your final vaccine dose must have been administered at least 7 days prior to travel. Your NHS appointment card from vaccination centres is not designed to be used as proof of vaccination and should not be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.

Thank you! I get confused and second guess myself in these situations.
