Immunisation Requirements for Enrolment

A major change to the regulations is that all children must have a ‘Statement of Immunisation’ (not the blue book) from Medicare before children can commence preschool.  To obtain this information you can access the website at https://www1.medicareaustralia.gov.au/ssl/acircirgcert

or call the Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809.

If you are a conscientious objector then the Immunisation Exemption Conscientious Objection Form will need to be completed by your doctor or immunisation nurse and a copy of the form provided upon enrolment at the preschool.

If your child has a medical condition that exempts them from being vaccinated then the Immunisation Exemption Medical Contraindication Form needs to be completed by your doctor or immunisation nurse and a copy of the form be given to the preschool upon enrolment.

Further information can be obtained from NSW Health
