The Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) was established in 1996 and is a national register that records details of vaccinations given to children under 7 years of age who live in Australia. In January 2016 the register expanded to show the childhood vaccinations history for adolescents up to the age of 20.
On the 30 September 2016 ACIR became the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR). The AIR captures all National Immunisation Program (NIP), and most privately purchased vaccines, given to people of all ages.
You can obtain a record of your child’s immunisation history from AIR through the Department of Human Services website. You will need to register for online services at the following link, and then you will be able to request a history statement. Alternatively, you can call AIR on 1800 653 809 and request that a statement is sent to you.
