On the 4 December the AIR completed the transition to replace the use of the National Immunisation Register (NIR) and the COVID Immunisation Register (CIR). This milestone moved us to one sole register operating in New Zealand.
The AIR enables vaccination providers to take a whole of whānau approach to vaccination delivery. Vaccinators will be able to view immunisation history and will be able to offer vaccinations. The new register enables greater flexibility in vaccine delivery, providing the ability to set up mobile sites and support vaccination providers in delivering vaccinations in community settings.
Vaccination providers have access to the AIR either via their Patient Management System or the AIR Vaccinator Portal, reducing the need for manual rework and increasing the time available to focus on reaching out to whānau about vaccinations.
