Changes To Australian Immunisation Register

Australian Medical Association

Q Fever vaccination providers are asked to be aware of the register changes.

From 15 April 2024, vaccination providers can report Q fever (Q-VAX) vaccines and natural immunity information to the AIR. This will support the closure of the Australian Q Fever Register (Q Fever Register). The Q Fever Register is owned and funded by the Australian Meat Processor Corporation and administered by AUS-MEAT.

Vaccination providers will no longer be able to report Q fever vaccine information to the Q Fever Register. Instead, providers should report this information to the AIR.

Reporting timely, high quality and accurate vaccination information ensures that the AIR contains a complete and reliable dataset. It also ensures that individuals have a complete record of their vaccinations that can be provided as evidence for education, employment, and/or travel purposes.
