Australian Immunisation Register for health professionals

Register patients on the AIR

Information how recognised vaccination providers register patients on the Australian Immunisation Register.

Register patients

We automatically include people who are enrolled in Medicare on the AIR. We add people who aren’t eligible to enrol in Medicare to the AIR when a recognised vaccination provider records immunisation details for them.

To ensure AIR data is accurate, it’s important to remind patients to notify Medicare if their details change.

Deceased individuals

We take all possible care to avoid adding to the distress of bereaved families. If you know about the death of a patient, contact Medicare.
