Other information:





Please note that as of 28 February 2018, an Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register will be the only form of documentation accepted as proof of a child's immunisation status.

Without a statement showing completed immunisation, your child will not be able to be enrolled in school.

Documents provided by GPs or other immunisation providers will no longer be sufficient as a form of evidence.

Medicare will usually automatically send you an Immunisation History Statement when your child turns 5.
