When I got my family here, the first thing I wanted to do was to enrol my daughter in daycare. There were two primary reasons for that: one, she would quickly assimilate into the Australian culture and two, a rather selfish one, that my wife would be free to look for a job.
Fortunately, there was a vacancy at the daycare close to my house. Plus, the fees and timings were within our expectations. More importantly, there were a few Indian educators which meant a smooth transition to the new culture for my daughter. There was only one problem – my daughter’s overseas immunisation records were not updated in the Australian public healthcare system – Medicare.
What’s The Big Deal?
I believe that immunisation is a must for every child for their good health and well-being. Apparently, not all Australians agree to that.
