COVID-19 (coronovirus) updates regarding Council's Immunisation Program
Please check our Changes to Council Services page for the latest information about our Immunisation Program during periods of COVID-related restrictions.
The Immunisation Program Calendar is available below.
School Entry Immunisation Certificates
Children enrolling into primary school in Victoria require a school entry immunisation certificate. After your child has completed their 4-year-old vaccine schedule, you can use your child’s immunisation history statement (provided by Medicare – Australian Immunisation Register) as proof of immunisation for childcare or school enrolment.
You can get a copy of your child's immunisation details from Medicare at any time:
- through your Medicare online accounts or Medicare Express App
- by requesting a statement to be sent in the mail
- at your local service centre
- by calling the Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809
Immunisation history statements are only available online, through the Medicare Express App or at a service centre if your child is under 14 years of age.
Children who have immunisation records that are incomplete, missing or who have never been vaccinated, should contact Council's Environmental Health Department on (03) 5832 9731. We can advise on how you can complete your child’s immunisation schedule and/or prepare an immunisation catch-up program, which can be provided for enrolment into primary school.
Council’s Environmental Health department can also provide immunisation records for individuals that have been immunised through a Greater Shepparton City Council immunisation service. Council is not able to provide records of immunisations given by doctors or other providers. Fees apply for individuals 18 years of age and over.
The application form for immunisation records is available for download below.
