Immunisation

The Immunisation Status of your child is extremely important. In the event of a vaccine preventable disease occurring in the Centre, the Director is required to notify the Public Health Unit. Un-immunised children must be excluded from the Centre, with fees still payable at this time. The centre will ensure that parents/carers provide documentation of their child's immunisation history statement from the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) upon enrolment. The Immunisation History Statement can be obtained online using your Medicare online account, through myGov or the Express Plus Medicare mobile app. It can also be obtained by visiting Medicare or Centrelink or by phoning the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) on 1800 653809.
