All students receive a vaccine record on the day of their vaccination.
Any vaccine given through a school-based program is added to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR).
You can view an immunisation history statement of all your child’s vaccines through the myGov website.
You can access this statement via two options:
- online via myGov — follow the link to Medicare and then click on ‘Immunisation History Statement’
- download the ‘Medicare Express Plus’ app on your mobile through the app store, click on the immunisation tab
Please contact the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) directly on 1800 653 809 if you child’s school vaccines don’t appear on their immunisation history statement after 3 weeks.
You can only obtain a record of HPV doses (Gardasil) through the HPV Register. Please print and complete the Request to add school vaccines to the Australian Immunisation Register Form to access other school vaccines on the Australian Immunisation Register.
It can take up to 2 weeks for the vaccines to appear on the Register.
No school vaccine records are available before 2003 as they were destroyed in the Canberra bush fires. We advise you to speak to your GP if you require more information on this.
