Your immunisation history statement has all your vaccines that have been recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR). The statement also shows:
when your next vaccines are due
if any vaccines are overdue
if you are part of an immunisation trial.
You can get your child’s statement if they are younger than 14. This helps you to:
keep track of the vaccines they had up until they are 14
prove your child has had what they need to access child care or school
see if any vaccines are overdue
check if your child has an immunisation medical exemption recorded
check that your child meets immunisation requirements for Family Tax Benefit Part A and child care fee assistance.
If you think a vaccine is missing from your statement, speak to your immunisation provider.
The quickest way to get your statement is online by using your Medicare online account through the:
Express Plus Medicare Mobile App
Call the AIR enquiries line on 1800 653 809. It can take 14 days to get your statement in the post.
