Immunisation Register for Early Childhood Services and Primary Schools

Health (Immunisation) Regulations 1995 requires every early childhood service and primary school maintains an Immunisation Register.  This is a tool that can be accessed quickly by public health staff to determine if there are vulnerable contacts in your service or school to prevent the spread of a disease.  This could be related to an individual case or an outbreak situation.  To find out what you need to do and to download a copy of the Immunisation Register, click on the links below.
