Australian Childhood Immunisation Register

 

Description

The Australian Childhood Immunisation Register is a national register that records the details of vaccinations given to children under the age of seven years who reside in Australia.

The purpose of the register is to monitor levels of immunisation coverage and service delivery, to check the immunisation status of children for health professionals, and the child's parents or guardians and to provide recorded immunisation history to assist with establishing eligibility for benefits and incentive payments.

Children under the age of seven years and enrolled in Medicare are automatically registered.
