We’re adding active catch up schedules to immunisation history statements
17 January 2020
From 18 January 2020, active catch up schedules will appear on immunisation history statements.
This will make it faster and easier to prove your child is on an approved catch up schedule. You may need to do this to meet the immunisation requirements for:
- enrolment into childcare and school
- some family assistance payments.
Your vaccination provider can put you on a catch up schedule if your child isn’t up to date with their vaccinations.
The provider must record the catch up schedule on the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) before it will show on your immunisation history statement. For privacy reasons, anyone aged 14 or older can get their own immunisation history statement. If your child is 14 or older, you’ll need their permission to ask for a copy of their statement.
If any past immunisations are missing from the record, speak to your vaccination provider and ask them to record them on the AIR. All immunisations recorded on the AIR will also show on your immunisation history statement.
