New Immunisation Requirements for Family Assistance Payments

Only parents of children who are fully immunised or are on a recognised catch-up schedule can receive the Child Care Benefit, the Child Care Rebate and the Family Tax Benefit Part A end of year supplement.

Children with medical contraindications or natural immunity for certain diseases will continue to be exempt from the requirements.

Conscientious objection and vaccination objection on non-medical grounds will no longer be a valid exemption from immunisation requirements.

Please make sure Alita has your child’s current and up-to-date Immunisation History Statement from Medicare every time they receive a vaccination
