What is “No Jab, No Pay”?

Page last updated 04 June 2020

“No Jab, No Pay” is an Australian Government initiative to help ensure all children are fully immunised in line with the National Immunisation Program (NIP). 

Children must meet the immunisation requirements for Family Tax Benefit (FTB) Part A and Child Care Subsidy (CCS). Families need to ensure all children under 20 years of age are fully immunised in line with the NIP schedule.

If your child has missed out on the recommended vaccines in the NIP, they are eligible to be vaccinated through a 'catch-up' program. For more information speak with your healthcare practitioner.
