New Covid and Influenza Immunisation History Statement

Department of Health

You can now use the new COVID-19 and Influenza Immunisation History Statement (IHS) from the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR).

The AIR is a national immunisation register that records vaccines given to all people in Australia. This includes COVID-19 vaccines, vaccines given under the National Immunisation Program (NIP), and vaccines given privately, such as for seasonal influenza or travel.

The new IHS only displays COVID-19 and influenza vaccination information (including medical contraindications) on the AIR for an individual. You can use it as evidence for employment purposes, instead of providing your full vaccination history. This helps to protect your privacy as you can choose not to disclose information about other vaccinations that you may have received.
