Rules mandating vaccination reporting on AIR pass Parliament

All vaccination providers will now be required to report vaccinations to the Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) following the successful passage of a new law through Parliament last week.

Reporting to the AIR was previously at the discretion of vaccination providers but the new law means any COVID-19 vaccines, once approved for use and administered in Australia, must be reported to the AIR.

Seasonal flu vaccinations, which were previously only reported at a rate of about 50 per cent, must be reported to the AIR from March 1, and all other National Immunisation Program (NIP) vaccinations such as the MMR, HPV and pertussis vaccines, must be included from July 1.

Will the ADT (tetanus booster) given in ED be recorded on the AIR?
I fear not. Public hospitals do a lot of immunisations but do their EMRs connect with the real world?
