To finalise your child’s application to enrol we are required to see a copy of your child’s immunisations are up to date for their age. Evidence of up to date immunisation must be before commencing at our service. An Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register can be used as evidence of up to date vaccination. An Immunisation Status Certificate from a medical doctor or a local council immunisation service may also be used.
Other immunisation records, such as ‘homeopathic immunisation’ or a statutory declaration from you are not acceptable. Immunisation History Statements are available on request at any time by contacting Medicare:
If you are experiencing difficulties accessing vaccinations or required related documents, please contact us for assistance as soon as you are able. In some cases children can commence at the service while the required documents are obtained.
