School entry immunisation certificate

Starting Primary School is a good time to check your child’s immunisations are up to date.  By law, your child must have an immunisation status certificate to enrol in primary school.

What is an immunisation status certificate?

  • It is a statement showing the immunisations your child has received.
  • By law, you must provide an immunisation status certificate to the primary school when enrolling your child.
  • If your child has not received any immunisations, you must still provide a certificate.
  • The school keeps a copy of the certificate so that, in the event of a disease outbreak, unimmunised children can be quickly identified and excluded from school until the risk of infection has passed.

How do I obtain an immunisation status certificate?

A Child History Statement from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) will be sent to you once your child has completed the four year old immunisation, however you can request a certificate at any time from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register or from your doctor or local council.

  • phone 1800 653 809 or
  • email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • www.medicareaustralia.gov.au/online
  • visit your local Medicare Office.

You should also contact ACIR if you:

  • are moving or have recently moved, to ensure your contact details are up to date
  • think your child’s statement is incomplete or incorrect.

From your doctor or local council

If your child is not eligible for a Medicare card, your child has never been vaccinated or was vaccinated overseas then contact your doctor or Council’s immunisation service to assist you in obtaining a School Entry Immunisation Certificate.

Adult influenza immunistion is provided through the General Practiitioner (GP) Services in the Shire.
