Welcome to the Melbourne Vaccine Education Centre (MVEC), a new web-based initiative, providing up-to-date immunisation information for healthcare professionals, parents and the public.
It is a collaboration between the The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) and its Melbourne Children’s campus partners (Murdoch Childrens Research Institute and The University of Melbourne) and Monash Health.
MVEC includes online A to Z immunisation guidelines, addressing common queries about vaccines. It also highlights our education programs, such as the Clinical Vaccinology Update (CVU) which runs annually in Melbourne. We also have an up-to-date Immunisation Schedule App, ideal to use on your smart phone or tablet. Through improved vaccine education of parents and health care professionals, MVEC aims to address common queries around vaccines and to promote the benefits of immunisation for both children and adults.
