From 7 Aug 2020, it will be mandatory for children attending an early childhood service to be up-to-date with vaccinations.
Parents are required to provide approved immunisation records upon enrolment, and at other specific ages throughout the child’s attendance at:
▪️family day care
▪️early learning centres
Early childhood services are also required to keep a copy of all approved immunisation records for the duration a child is enrolled in their service.
Retaining immunisation records onsite will enable a faster response time during a vaccine preventable disease outbreak, and help protect vulnerable children.
An approved immunisation record is a child’s immunisation history statement from the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR): https://bit.ly/31tPvw9
Check the AIR to see your child’s records, and talk to your immunisation provider to ensure your child is fully immunised.
