Australian Immunisation Register

The Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) is a national register that records all vaccines given to all people in Australia.

Only a recognised vaccination provider can update the AIR. This includes Doctors, such as a General Practitioner, Community Health Centres or Pharmacists.

As long as all the qualifying data requirements have been met, an immunisation recorded as a clinical item in Communicare is automatically transmitted from Communicare to the AIR and recorded in an individual patient’s national AIR record.

If your organisation is participating in any of the following programs, you will be required to report on patients who are immunised:
  • National Key Performance Indicators for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Primary Health Care (nKPI)
  • Northern Territory Aboriginal Health Key Performance Indicators (AHKPI)
  • New South Wales Key Performance Indicators (NSW KPI)
