Immunisation information on MMRV

Immunisation information on MMRV

For children born from 1 July 2012 onwards, the combination MMRV vaccines replace the second dose of MMR vaccine previously scheduled for children at four years of age, and the varicella vaccine currently scheduled for children at 18 months of age.

When reporting MMRV vaccines to the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) would you please report these vaccines as dose two to ensure the MMR component of the vaccine is not recorded as a duplicate dose one. The ACIR system will automatically calculate the Varicella dose number.
