From January 1 2016 your child’s immunisations must be up-to-date or they must be in a catch up schedule to receive Child Care Benefit, Child Care Rebate and the Family Tax Benefit – Part A end-of-year supplement. Vaccinations for children under the age of 10 are free, and for 10 to 19 year olds, from now until the end of next year, the Australian Government will provide free vaccines to families who currently receive family assistance payments.
