Mandatory reporting for COVID-19 and Influenza vaccinations

17 March 2021

It’s mandatory to report COVID-19 and flu vaccinations to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR).

Changes to AIR legislation now require vaccination providers to report all COVID-19 and influenza vaccinations to the AIR.

To help you report vaccinations, we’ve updated the AIR site to:

  • be optimised for mobile devices
  • record your HPI-I or HPI-O number
  • include new COVID-19 and flu vaccine codes
  • track vaccines through new ‘Vaccine batch number’ and ‘Vaccine serial number’ fields.

When you give a COVID-19 or flu vaccination, it’s important to record it on the AIR within 24 hours of service or up to 10 business days after it’s administered.
