Find your immunisation records

Some records are kept centrally in national and state databases, however you should always keep records of all immunisations given to you or your child.

Recording vaccinations

The Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) now records vaccinations details for everyone in Australia. It was previously known as the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) and only recorded details for children up to 7 years old.

Your vaccinations will be recorded when the vaccination provider sends your vaccination details to AIR.

If you don’t have a Medicare card, you can still be vaccinated and have these recorded on the AIR.

Vaccinations given to adolescents in the School Immunisation Program, including Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccinations are also recorded on AIR.

Accessing records

Children under 14 years

You can get your child’s immunisation history statement by:

Immunisation history statements may be required when enrolling your child at an early childhood education and care service. Check with your service to find out what their policy is.

Your child's immunisation history statement will include vaccinations administered through the School Immunisation Program. However, if your child is 14 years or older they will need to create their own online myGov account to access their immunisation history statement.

Adolescents

If you are aged 14 and older you access your own immunisation history statement through AIR by:

Your immunisation history statement will include vaccinations administered through the School Immunisation Program. You can also access records of immunisations through your doctor or school immunisation provider. If you cannot remember who provided the school immunisation service, call 13 HEALTH (13 43 25 84).

Adults

From October 2016 AIR records adult immunisations. Ask your immunisation provider to report vaccinations you receive directly to AIR.

To find past immunisation records, you can ask the doctor or immunisation provider who vaccinated you to check their medical records for:

  • adolescent vaccinations given before 2007, when the Queensland School Immunisation Program began
  • childhood vaccinations given before 1996, when ACIR (now AIR) began.

If you were born after 1996, you can still access your previous ACIR, (now AIR) record.

Due to privacy requirements, details of records held by Queensland Health are only given to doctors or immunisation providers.
