Uses for the Immunisation Register
Health professionals use the Immunisation Register to monitor immunisation coverage levels and services, and to identify regions at risk during disease outbreaks.
Immunisation Register data also:
- let's immunisation providers and parents or guardians check the immunisation status of a child, regardless of where the child was immunised
- generates an optional immunisation history statement, which tells parents and guardians of their child’s recorded immunisation history
- can be used to help determine a parent’s or guardian’s eligibility for some Australian Government family assistance payments
- provides information for the delivery of incentive payments and feedback reports to eligible immunisation providers
