Please be aware changes to immunisation requirements will start 1st January 2016
From 1 January 2016, parents who want to receive Child Care Benefit, Child Care Rebate or Family Tax Benefit Part A supplement for a child of any age must make sure their child’s immunisations are up to date.
These changes will also affect customers who receive Grandparent Child Care Benefit, Special Child Care Benefit or Jobs, Education and Training Child Care Fee Assistance.
The Australian Childhood Immunisation Register, which currently records immunisation details for children under 7 years of age, will be extended to capture immunisation details for children and young people under 20 years of age.
Objections on the basis of personal, philosophical or religious beliefs, sometimes referred to as vaccination objections, will no longer be a valid exemption.
