Immunisation Policy

Bardon Community Kindy Enrolment Immunisation Policy

Following amendments to the Public Health Act 2005 (Qld) which took effect on 1 January 2016, Bardon Community Kindergarten will no longer accept enrolments of children who are not “up to date” with their scheduled vaccinations. This policy applies to siblings of children previously enrolled at Bardon Community Kindergarten.

Prior to enrolment and attendance at Bardon Community Kindergarten, parents are required to provide an immunisation history statement stating that their child’s immunisation status is “up to date” (and an updated statement when their child passes future vaccination milestones if applicable).

Children who have an exemption for a vaccine given by a recognised immunisation provider because of a medical contraindication to a vaccine are considered “up to date”. Similarly, children who are on an approved immunisation catch-up schedule developed by a recognised immunisation provider are also considered “up to date”.
