If you or your child have had vaccines overseas you should get them added to the AIR, especially if you need to meet immunisation requirements for family assistance payments.
How to do this
Find records that show you had the vaccines and take these to your vaccination provider. You can ask them to update the AIR.
- check if the vaccines you’ve had match the National Immunisation Program Schedule on the Department of Health website
- tell you how to catch up if you’re missing any
- update the AIR
After the AIR is updated, the vaccines will be on your Immunisation History Statement.
Documents in other languages
If your records are in another language you’ll need to get them translated into English and may need to give it to your vaccination provider. Read about the Free Translating Service on the Department of Social Services website.
