Before enrolling a child, you need to request parents/carers supply a current Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) Immunisation History Statement.

You also need to check that the statement shows the child is up to date with all the vaccinations they are due/able to receive.

Evidence of up-to-date immunisation must be provided within the two months prior to the child commencing at your service.

The only acceptable evidence of immunisation is an AIR Immunisation History Statement, which you need to keep on file with the child’s enrolment record.

You do not need to know the vaccine schedule, or interpret any other documentation the parent/carer gives you.
