A copy of your child’s immunisation record is required at enrolment please. This must be in the form of an official record issued by the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register or a letter from a recognised immunisation provider (e.g. a GP or immunisation nurse). As your child progresses through with their subsequent immunisation schedules, so too their updated record will need to be provided… Regrettably the “Personal Health Record” (the ‘red book’) from Queensland Health is no longer an acceptable proof of immunisation as it contains only handwritten updates.
A child must be fully immunised, on a catch up immunisation schedule or have a valid exemption at the time a parent makes their very first claim for Childcare Benefit. Please provide your valid exemption from your General Practitioner if applicable.
N.B. Not providing this information will result in exclusion from care in the event of particular infections, at the discretion of the Population Health Unit. Normal fees will apply during absence.
