Australian Immunisation Register vaccine code formats

Vaccine codes are available for use in software products that can send claims to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) through Medicare online claiming.

Vaccine codes are available for software vendors to build into software products that can send immunisation claims to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) through Medicare online claiming.

Two mandatory data elements for every AIR episode (single vaccination) sent through Medicare online claiming are vaccine code and vaccine dose. Following are lists containing the vaccine brand name, vaccine code and maximum allowable dose.

Where the max doses field displays NR, this means that there is no restriction on the maximum allowable doses that can be transmitted for that vaccine.
