Find out the vaccination requirements for starting high school, get your child's immunisation history statement, and look up the school vaccination schedule.
The NSW Immunisation Schedule outlines what vaccinations your child needs to be up to date with.
You'll have to provide an immunisation history statement when enrolling your child at high school. It's available from the Australian Immunisation Register, which records all your child’s vaccinations.
Some children may be exempt from vaccinations due to medical reasons or natural immunity. This will still be captured on their immunisation history statement as up to date.
If you choose not to vaccinate your child, you can still enrol them without an immunisation history statement.
However, if there is an outbreak of a vaccine preventable disease, your child may be asked to stay at home until it is safe to return to school.
Students in year 7 are offered recommended vaccines at school.
Information kits and consent forms are generally sent home to parents and carers early in the school year.
