The new Australian Immunisation Register (AIR)

5 October 2016

On 30 September, the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) became the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR), a national register that records vaccinations given to people of all ages in Australia. Vaccination providers are expected to send all their patient’s immunisation details to the AIR.

Please ensure your practice software is up to date with the latest version, to accomodate these changes:

  • Medical Director: 3.16c
  • Best Practice: Lava754

Contact your Software Provider should you need further support.

For more information about AIR, there is a pdf Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) Factsheet (581 KB) , or visit the Department of Human Services website.
