Have you received the support of our Maternal and Child Health (MCH) team?
All Mornington Peninsula parents of newborns and children have access to this free service until their child starts school. This includes visits to a local Maternal and Child Health nurse at 10 key ages in the child’s development.
These visits are provided at one of our 16 Maternal and Child Health Centres located across the Mornington Peninsula.
Alongside our Maternal and Child Health service, we also offer an Immunisation service. This provides free immunisations through the National Immunisation Program for infants and children (0-10 years of age), Years 7 - 10 students (Secondary School Immunisation Program) and adults (Whooping Cough Booster for expectant parents).
The community immunisation sessions are offered at nine different venues across the Shire.
To ensure these services meet our community, we are seeking feedback on your experience when using these services.
Have your say on how we can improve our Maternal and Child Health and Immunisation services.
This community consultation stems from our Council and Wellbeing Plan and specifically Theme 3, “A flourishing, healthy and connected community”. To find out more, please visit our website: mornpen.vic.gov.au/councilplan
