Record an encounter
How to record an immunisation encounter on the AIR site.
It’s now mandatory to record a batch number when reporting COVID-19 and influenza vaccinations to the AIR. Astra Zeneca and Pfizer vaccines have a lot number instead of a batch number. Enter the lot number when there is no batch number.
Once you’ve identified an individual. Select Record Encounter from the left hand menu.
To record the encounter:
- select Who performed this immunisation encounter from the drop down menu.
- then select the appropriate schedule and enter the date of service.
- enter the episode detail including the vaccine brand, batch number and dose details. Some vaccines, including Astra Zeneca and Pfizer, have a lot number instead of a batch number. Enter the lot number when there is no batch number.
- then select Add to record the encounter.
A message will display to let you know you successfully recorded the encounter and you’ll also receive a claim ID.
