The AIR Planned Catch Up Date function is used to notify AIR that an individual under 20 years of age is on a planned catch up for overdue immunisations. For family assistance payments, if a planned catch up is recorded via the AIR Web Service, the individual’s immunisation status is up-to-date for a period of 6 months.

However, the individual’s AIR immunisation status will remain ‘not up to date’ until all scheduled catch up vaccinations are recorded.

Note: only 1 planned catch up for overdue immunisations can ever be recorded for an individual.

If an individual already has a planned catch up recorded, the service will return a message stating it has already been recorded, and also the expiry date for the existing planned catch up will display.
