Maternal & Child Health Services continue to operate.   

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has released requirements for MCH services to follow to help reduce the spread of COVID – 19.

As per the DHHS recommendations service delivery for MCH has resumed, offering standard length face to face appointments for all infants and children of all age groups.

Telephone consultations are used to supplement face to face service provision where suitable.

Young infants and new parents at key ages and stages including the first consultation, and at 2,4 and 8 weeks, and anyone with additional needs or complexity will be given priority access.

Please call (03) 5568 0516 to arrange a consultation with a MCH nurse.

IMMUNISATION SERVICES:

While COVID-19 is definitely front of mind, it's still very important that children are up-to-date with their immunisations against other vaccine preventable diseases. Keeping vaccinations up to date will minimise the risk of children needing medical attention.

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) has released requirements for immunisation clinics to follow to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, which we are strictly following. As per the DHHS recommendations, Moyne Shire will be extending clinics to ensure we are meeting the requirements of social distancing.

The childhood immunisation clinics are currently operating from The Younger Ross Maternal & Child Health Centre, Port Fairy Community Services Centre,  and at the Terang Mortlake Health Service in Mortlake, at the Maternal & Child Health Centre.

Please call (03) 5568 0516 to book an appointment.
