Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) statistics

Overview

The major functions of the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (the ACIR) are to:

  • provide an accurate measure of the immunisation coverage of children in Australia under 7 years of age
  • provide an effective management tool for monitoring immunisation coverage and service delivery

A range of reports has been developed to inform the general public about the current operation of the ACIR and immunisation in Australia. Authorised immunisation providers can access detailed reports via the secured area of this site.
