Remember

  • The Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) has now expanded to become the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR).

  • AIR can record immunisations given to people of all ages in Australia.
  • Please ensure Medicare has the correct details (including address) for you and your children.
