As of 1 July 2012 the Maternity Immunisation Allowance ceased. From 1 July 2012 instead of receiving a specific allowance for immunisation, families with children need to have their children fully immunised in order to receive the existing Family Tax Benefit A supplement.
The Maternity Immunisation Allowance was run through Centrelink and the Family Assistance Office. It offered a non-income tested payment to parents to encourage them to immunise their children.
