Victorian legislation (No jab, No play) requires all children to be fully immunised for their age at the time of Kindergarten enrolment. For further information, please refer to www.mvec.vic.edu.au/immunisation-references/no-jab-no-play/ or contact the Immunisation Nurse at Bayside City Council on 9599 4755.
Enrolment to kindergarten will require evidence of your child’s immunisation status.
To obtain an Immunisation History Statement:
- go to your Medicare online account through mygov
- use the Express Plus Medicare mobile app
- call the AIR enquiries line 1800 653 809
Or obtain an Immunisation Status Certificate provided by a GP or Immunisation Nurse.
Overseas records are unacceptable documentation for enrolment and need to be assessed by a GP or Immunisation Nurse so an Immunisation Status Certificate can be issued for the purpose of enrolling at an education and care service.
Other records such as those showing “Homeopathic Immunisations” or a statutory declaration of conscientious objection from parents are not acceptable for enrolment.
