Immunisation requirements

To meet the immunisation requirements for Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate,  your child’s details must be up to date with the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register. To check your child’s immunisation status follow this link: Human Services


You will receive your child’s Immunisation History Statement in the mail after their 18-month and 3 1/2 - 4 year old vaccinations. You can request a copy of your child's immunisation details at any time by:



  • Visiting the local Department of Human Services Service Centre, Medicare office or Centrelink office


If your child is not immunised and you want an immunisation exemption, you need to provide the Department of Human Services with one of the following from your immunisation provider or doctor:

  • An Immunisation exemption for medical reasons (contraindication) form
  • An Immunisation exemption by conscientious objection form, or
  • A letter explaining why the exemption is necessary


For an Immunisation exemption by conscientious objection form go to: http://www.humanservices.gov.au and type in ‘Search’ the item highlighted above.
