Immunisation History Statement

Under the ‘No Jab, No Play’ and ‘No Jab, No Pay’ Legislation implemented by the Australian and Victorian Government from 1 January 2016, it is a requirement that all children attending a childcare service must be fully immunised.

To have an enrolment confirmed for a child in Family Day Care, parents/guardians must provide the service with:

  • a current Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR); AND
  • the statement must show that the child is up to date with all vaccinations that are due for their age, or that they are able to receive.

You can obtain a copy of your child’s Immunisation History Statement anytime by accessing your online myGov or Express Plus Medicare account, visiting the Medicare Office or by phoning the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809.

If your child is not immunised or up to date with their immunisations, you will need to discuss with the Family Day Care Coordination Unit Staff who can assist you to assess your eligibility to meet the Medical Exemption or the Grace Period criteria.

Under the ‘No Jab, No Play’ legislation, parents/guardians are obligated to provide the Family Day Care Coordination Unit Office Staff with the current Immunisation History Statement each time your child’s immunisations are updated.
