‘No Jab, No Play’ is the name of legislation that requires all children to be fully vaccinated unless they have a medical exemption to be enrolled in childcare or kindergarten in Victoria.
In order for enrolment to be confirmed at Eastmont, parents/carers must provide a current Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) Immunisation History Statement, prior to commencing. The statement must show that the child is up to date with all vaccinations that are due for their age, or that they are able to receive. The statement lists the vaccines the child has received and, if applicable, which are due in the future and when. Any medical exemptions from an authorised medical practitioner may also be listed (where applicable).
Only statements issued by the Australian Immunisation Register will be accepted.
The Medicare logo and the Australian Government crest must be present and identifiable to be considered a valid Immunisation History statement. For example, if the statement is page two of a letter from Medicare, both pages need to be presented.
Your child will not be able to commence kindergarten sessions until this statement is provided.
