Under the ‘No Jab, No Play’ legislation, before enrolling a child, early childhood education and care services have to first obtain evidence that the child is up to date with all vaccinations that are due for their age, or that they are able to receive.
An Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) is the only form of documentation accepted for the purpose of enrolling in an early childhood education and care service.
After enrolment, parents will need to continue to provide up to date Immunisation History Statements to their child’s early childhood service, if their status changes.
You can get your immunisation history statement straight away by accessing your medicare online account via my.gov.au
If you can't use Medicare online, we can print your immunisation history statement for you.
You can also call the AIR enquiries line (1800 653 809) and ask them to send your immunisation history statement to you. It can take up to 14 days to arrive in the post.
Please note: Only Immunisation History Statements from the Australian Immunisation Register will be accepted as evidence of immunisation.
