About the Australian Immunisation Register
The Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) is a national register that records vaccines given to all people in Australia. HPV immunisations are included in your immunisation history recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register.
You can access an Immunisation History Statement online using your Medicare online account through MyGov.
View instructions on how to access an immunisation history statement.
Alternatively, you can:
- Ask your doctor or immunisation provider to print a copy for you from the Australian Immunisation Register website.
- Call the Australian Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809 (8am–5pm, Monday to Friday) and request a copy to be mailed to you. Please note that this can take up to 10 business days.
- Go online to your myGov account and access your Medicare online account.
- Use the Express Plus Medicare mobile app.
Parents and guardians can only access their child’s Immunisation History Statement if the child is under 14 years of age.
Children aged 14 and over must access their own Immunisation History Statement or they can give consent for their parent or carer to access it on their behalf.
What are the privacy regulations and how is data about immunisation stored?
When you receive a vaccine, the person administering the vaccine may report personal information about you to the Register.
Personal information that may be reported to the Register includes:
- your name
- date of birth
- contact details
- Indigenous status
- Medicare number (if any), and
- healthcare identifier (if any).
Other information may also be reported to the Register including details of the vaccination, and information about the person who administered the vaccine.
