Immunisation register


The National Immunisation Register is a computerised information system that has been developed to hold immunisation details of New Zealand children. The purpose of the NIR is to assist New Zealand to improve its immunisation rates

The NIR:

  • The NIR enables authorised health professionals to quickly and easily find out what vaccines a child has been given (this includes children whose family has shifted to another area or changed healthcare providers). This will help to make sure immunisations are given at the appropriate time.
  • provides you with the option of getting a copy of your child's immunisation details at any time.

For more information about the Immunisation Register, go to National Immunisation Register.
