Immunisation enrolment toolkit

The immunisation enrolment toolkit has been designed to assist early childhood education and care services with their legal responsibilities and immunisation record management under the 'No Jab, No Play' legislation in Victoria.

The toolkit contains guidance on how to request, assess and manage immunisation documentation, and how to assist parents/carers and families who may face difficulties in meeting the requirements.

The immunisation enrolment toolkit also provides a range of tools, templates and resources to assist you in these tasks, as well as contacts for more information, and responses to particular scenarios.

The toolkit has been converted from a print-based publication to an online tool. Please refer to the online toolkit for the most current information
