Authentication file is ending, make the move to PRODA now

28 May 2021

We’re phasing out authentication file access to the Australian Immunisation Register.

If you use authentication file to access the AIR you need to transition to PRODA now.

With a PRODA account you can access the AIR using Health Professional Online Services.

All authentication file access to the AIR will be switched off by 30 September 2021, but some provider types will lose access sooner. Access will be switched off according to the following schedule:


    31 May 2021

    • Commercial providers
    • Flying Doctor Services
    • Private hospitals

    30 June 2021

    • State health departments
    • Public health units
    • Public hospitals
    • Pharmacies

    30 September 2021

    • Medical Practitioners, Nurse Practitioners, Midwives
    • General/medical practices
    • Aboriginal Health Services
    • Community health centres
    • Councils

Next steps

We have information to help you register for a PRODA account and set up access to HPOS.

If you access the AIR as a member of an organisation, you can also find out how to register an organisation in PRODA and link HPOS to your organisation so members can access the AIR.
