All parents/guardians planning to enrol their child at childcare or kindergarten in Victoria must provide the service with:
a current Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR); AND
the statement must show that the child is up to date with all vaccinations that are due for their age, or that they are able to receive.
The Immunisation History Statement from the AIR lists the vaccines the child has received and, if applicable, which vaccines are due in the future and when. Medical exemption may also be listed, where applicable.
An Immunisation History Statement from the AIR is the only type of immunisation record accepted by early childhood and care services for the purposes of confirming enrolment.
Once enrolled, you will need to provide your child’s service with a new Immunisation History Statement whenever your child receives or was due to receive immunisation/s.
SKCC will regularly remind you of the need to keep this information up to date with them throughout the time your child is attending.
You can print a copy of your child’s Immunisation History Statement from your myGov account
the Express Plus Medicare mobile app
