Vaccines for school students

Primary school entry and vaccinations

Your child must have an immunisation history statement to enrol in a Victorian primary school.

An immunisation status certificate lists the vaccinations your child has received, and is used to identify and protect children who cannot be vaccinated if there is a disease outbreak at school.

You are sent this statement when your child turns 5, but you can request one at any time.

To access your Immunisation History Statement:

  • go to and sign in to your Medicare online account
  • use the Express Plus Medicare mobile app
  • call the Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809.
