Australian Childhood Immunisation Register

The Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (the ACIR) is a national data register, established in 1996, that records details of vaccinations given to children under seven years of age who live in Australia and are enrolled in Medicare.

Children who are not eligible to enrol in Medicare can be added to the ACIR when details of a vaccination are received from a doctor or immunisation provider.

Data is available for research purposes at detailed aggregate and unit record levels under terms and conditions that ensure compliance with the relevant legislation under which the collection has been made. A range of aggregate data has been made available on the Internet for public use.

Tables published on the internet. Data available includes:

  • National historical conscientious objection by calendar year - 1999 to current

  • State and territory historical conscientious objection by calendar year - 2012 to current

  • Current coverage data (for all children and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children only)

  • Historical coverage data (for all children and for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children only)
