We are able to provide New Zealanders with a local source of independent, factual information regarding vaccine-preventable disease and the benefits and risks of immunisation.
Please note that we do not have access to immunisation records.
The National Immunisation Register (NIR) was rolled out across New Zealand from mid-2005, prior to this there was no central immunisation register.
- Children born mid-2005 or later will have immunisation records on the NIR.
- Those living overseas should contact the District Health Board (DHB) they last lived in and ask for the National Immunisation Register department. Visit the Ministry of Health DHB websites page to find contact details for your DHB.
- Children, adolescents and adults born before mid-2005 will not have immunisation records on the NIR. Their records will only be in their Well Child Book or held by their previous or current doctor.
