Immunisation

Immunisation

SNHN aims to reduce the incidence of vaccine preventable diseases in the community by providing information on the National Immunisation Program and support to immunisation providers and the community. In collaboration with the Northern Sydney Public Health Unit, we can identify areas with lower immunisation rates, support strategies including data cleansing, cold chain management and use of AIR reports to aspire to rates above 95%.

Australian Immunisation Register (AIR)

About AIR

AIR is the register of vaccinations given to people of all ages in Australia. All vaccinations should be reported to the AIR. It is mandatory for all National Immunisation Program vaccines.

People of all ages enrolled in Medicare are automatically included on the AIR. However, a person’s history may be incomplete as it only became an all of life register in 2016.
