Immunisation requirements for children in childcare remain unchanged.

27 April 2020

It is important to continue to offer and promote routine vaccination services to children. Requirements for parents to ensure their children are up to date with vaccinations in order to meet child care enrolment and subsidy eligibility requirements have not changed.

All Child Care Subsidy (CCS) eligibility requirements will continue in place, and all approved providers and services must continue to comply with Family Assistance Law and National Law requirements. This includes the requirement under the CCS for children to meet the Childhood schedule on the Department of Health’s National Immunisation Program Schedule, be on a suitable catch up schedule in line with the Department of Health’s current Australian Immunisation Handbook, or have an approved medical exemption recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR).
