ImmunisationWestern Australia now has immunisation laws that will help to better protect both our children and the wider community from vaccine preventable diseases.

It is important to keep your child’s immunisation status ‘up to date’ at all times in order to provide the best protection. This will also mean your child can access early education services as well as family assistance payments provided by Centrelink.

When you enroll your child you will need to provide your child’s current Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) Immunisation History Statement, which shows that your child is ‘up to date’. The Statement must be no more than two months old.
