Enrolments are not complete without proof of birth - birth certificate or passport - visa documents included if applicable, and a certificate of completed immunisation from the Australian Immunisation Register.
New amendements to the No Jab, No Play legislation have tightened requirements for enrolment and impact acceptable documentation for school entry immunisation requirements: As of 28 February 2018, an Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register will be the only form of documentation accepted as proof of a child's immunisation status.
Documents produced by GPs or other immunisation providers will no longer be sufficient as a form of evidence.
Parents must provide an immunisation status certificate, from the Australian Immunisation Register, to the school regardless of whether the child is or is not immunised.
