Overseas Immunisations and Catch Up Schedules

Overseas Immunisations

If your child has received immunisations overseas, you will need to arrange for those records to be put onto the Australian Immunisation Register so your child’s immunisation status is kept up to date. 

The Immunisation Team can help you put your child’s overseas immunisation records onto the Australian Immunisation Register. You can email your child’s immunisation records to

In the email, ensure you include your child’s:

  • full name
  • date of birth
  • address
  • Medicare card number.   

Alternatively, you can visit the Immunisation Team at Council’s Croydon Offices. To make an appointment, call 1300 88 22 33
Please bring:

  • Your child’s immunisation records
  • Medicare Card 

Catch Up Schedules

The Immunisation Team can help you if your child hasn’t had some immunisations and you want to get them up to date with the National Immunisation Program

Catch up schedules can be given for a number of reasons:

  • The child was overseas or on holiday and missed the immunisation that was due
  • The family recently migrated to Australia and need to be up to date with the NIP
  • You were contentious objectors who would now like to have their child immunised
  • Medical condition preventing immunisations at a young age
  • You have received a Centrelink letter stating your child is not up to date 

If your child needs a catch up schedule, contact 1300 88 22 33 and speak to an Immunisation Team member.
