Manage your child’s health information including their vaccination records, allergy information and medicines list.
You can manage your child’s health information, including vaccination records, allergy information and medicines they are taking. If your child is under the age of 14 years and on the same Medicare card as you, you can also create a My Health Record for them if they don't already have one.
More than one parent can manage a child's record as their authorised representative.
Up until the age of 14, a parent or guardian is automatically an authorised representative. When a child turns 14, all representatives will be removed from their record. If they choose to, they can give their parent or guardian access as a nominated representative.
How to register a newborn for My Health Record
You can get a My Health Record for your newborn by:
completing the questions on the Newborn Child Declaration form in your newborn pack
registering them for their My Health Record when you enrol your baby for Medicare.
To access your newborn's record for the first time, follow the steps in 'How to access or create a child's record'.
To create or access a child's record for the first time, you need to have a myGov account. You will also need your Medicare card number and your Individual Reference Number, as well as the child’s Individual Reference Number (the numbers to the left of the names on the Medicare card).
