New immunisation record-keeping for early childhood services
Early childhood services will have to keep a copy of immunisation records of children attending their service from 1 January 2020.
It is a requirement of the Public Health Act 2011 (SA).
This is because a rapid response is required to prevent the spread of a vaccine-preventable disease in an early childhood service.
Services need to have current immunisation records onsite. They must be able to provide them to the chief public health officer within 24 hours when requested.
