Australian Immunisation Register

In September 2016, the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) became a whole-of-life register with the ability to record all vaccinations for people of all ages given by a registered vaccination provider.

As part of the transition to AIR,  HPV vaccination records held in the National HPV Vaccination Program Register (HPV Register) have been transferred into the AIR. 

From late 2018, all vaccinations given through school based programs can be recorded on the AIR, including the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine, the diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis booster and meningococcal ACWY vaccines.

Consumers and providers can access all vaccination records in one place and AIR Immunisation History Statements now include HPV vaccination information.

HPV immunisations will be included in your or your child’s immunisation history recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR). 

The fastest way to access your or your child’s Immunisation History Statement is online through your Medicare online account through myGov or using the Express Plus Medicare mobile phone app.  To use the app, you will need to set up your Medicare online account through myGov.

Alternatively, you can:

  • ask your vaccination provider to print a copy for you from the AIR site
  • call the AIR on 1800 653 809 (8am-5pm, Monday to Friday) and request a copy to be mailed to you (this can take up to 10 business days)
  • request a copy at a Department of Human Services Service Centre.

You can only access your child’s Immunisation History Statement if they are under 14 years of age. If they are 14 years of age or over, your child must access their own Immunisation History Statement or your child can give DHS permission to provide you with that information.

From 2019, an overdue reminder letter will be issued to your child if they are overdue for any HPV vaccination at the age of 14 years and 6 months. All overdue vaccinations will be reported on an individual’s Immunisation History Statement.
