The Maternal and Child Health phone app

The Maternal and Child Health app (MCH app) provides reliable information that families can use every day.

Download the free MCH app for trusted information matched to the age of your child, at your fingertips! The app can also track your child’s growth, and remind you about upcoming MCH appointments or immunisations.

And with Nora the digital assistant on hand to answer your questions, it's like having an MCH nurse with you 24 hours a day!

Recent updates to the MCH app help to manage your child’s vaccinations:

  • Detailed information on the benefits of child immunisation, and how to detect and manage reactions
  • A list of Victoria’s immunisation schedule, which details the vaccines given at each age
  • A link to access your Australian Immunisation Record online – this replaces the need for families to keep track of vaccinations, and is now required under federal legislation to access child care and to receive family assistance payments
  • Automated reminders, so you don’t have to worry about missing a scheduled immunisation.

The MCH app is also available in Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Dari, Khmer, Persian, Punjabi, Spanish and Vietnamese.
