AIR – Immunisation History Statement

All your vaccines recorded on the AIR will appear in your Immunisation History Statement.

Your Immunisation History Statement also shows:

  • when your next vaccines are due
  • any overdue vaccines
  • if you’re part of an immunisation trial

If you think a vaccine is missing from your statement, speak to your vaccination provider.

How to get it

The quickest way to get your statement is by using your Medicare online account through myGov or the Express Plus Medicare mobile app.

You can also call the AIR enquiries line. It can take 14 days to get your statement in the post.

The quickest way to get your child’s statement is by using your Medicare online account through myGov or the Express Plus Medicare mobile app. You can save and email the statement directly to your child’s pre-school or childcare centre.

Because of privacy policy, anyone aged 14 or older has to get their own statement. They can do this:
