Record flu, Zoster and Pneumococcal vaccines on the AIR
9 April 2019
You can record flu and other adult vaccines on the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR).
The AIR records vaccines given to people of all ages in Australia. This includes National Immunisation Program (NIP) Schedule vaccines, such as influenza and zostavax, as well as privately bought vaccines.
When you give a vaccine, you should record it on the AIR as soon as possible. The quickest way to do this is using your practice management software, or go to AIR through HPOS.
You can use the AIR site to:
- check a patient’s immunisation status, regardless of who immunised them
- edit immunisation errors
- record immunisation information
- see reports to help identify patients who are due or overdue for vaccinations.
You only need to record immunisation information on the AIR. The AIR will update your patients’ My Health Record if they have one.
To access the AIR make sure you have the latest version of your Practice Management Software and internet browser.
