You can use your immunisation history statement to:
- keep track of the immunisations you’ve had
- see if any immunisations are overdue or will be due soon
- see if you have an immunisation medical exemption recorded
- see if your child is on an active catch up schedule
- prove your immunisations are up to date for education, employment and travel purposes
- get proof of your COVID-19 vaccinations.
If you have a child under 14, you can do these things for them too. You can also check your child has had the immunisations they need for:
- Child Care Subsidy
- the full rate of Family Tax Benefit Part A
- the 2017-18 Family Tax Benefit Part A supplement.
Your recent vaccinations may take a few days to appear on your immunisation history statement. If you think an immunisation is missing from your statement, ask your vaccination provider to update the AIR.
