Opting out of the Australian Immunisation Register

You can choose not to get letters from the AIR or to stop others seeing your or your child's vaccination history on the AIR.

You can opt out of:

  • getting letters from the AIR
  • letting vaccination providers see your immunisation history
  • letting vaccination providers see your child’s immunisation history - if they’re under 14 and in your care

Please keep in mind, if you choose to opt out of sharing your immunisation history, even your GP can’t see your records. You may receive questions from your GP when they can’t see your immunisation history.

How to do this

Fill in and send the Australian Immunisation Register – Ceasing correspondence and release of information form. The address is on the form.

When your child turns 14

Your choice to opt out for your child ends when they turn 14. They can then opt out for themselves if they choose.
