The School Entry Immunisation Certificate & Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR)
The AIR will provide a national database that keeps a record of all vaccines given to children up to the age of 20 years. It is the responsibility of immunisation providers to report vaccines administered to AIR. A history statement of a child's immunisation status is automatically posted to the family address (as registered with Medicare) at one, two and five years of age.
The AIR mails a school entry certificate to parents on completion of four-year-old vaccines. If a child's immunisation records are incomplete or missing, call the City of Ballarat immunisation service at+61 3 5320 5720.
