Information on Immunisation Requirements
'No Jab, No Play' is the name of legislation that requires all children enrolled in kindergarten in Victoria to be fully vaccinated unless they have a medical exemption.
Families enrolling at OCK must provide an up to date immunisation history statement from the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) at the time of enrolling. We are unable to accept your maternal health care records, or similar records from other countries.
If no Immunisation History Statement is provided your child will be unable to attend OCK until the documentation is provided or the place may be offered to another child. However, if you are experiencing difficulties accessing vaccination information or the required 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.
How do I obtain my Immunisation History Statement?
You can get a statement from the Australian Immunisation Register:
online – through MyGov once an account has been created and Medicare has been linked
Medicare Express Plus App once a MyGov account has been created
over the counter – at a Medicare Service Centre
by phone – call the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) on 1800 653 809
by asking your GP/immunisation nurse if they can print the statement (note, not all immunisation providers can do this).
