Back to School Already?!
Doesn’t summer break always go by faster than you think? Like most parents, you’re probably already thinking about all the steps to getting your children school-ready. Don’t forget about well-child checkups, sports physicals andimmunizations.
Beat the Rush!
Your child may be due for a well-child check-up if he or she has not been seen in the past 12 months. Well-child visits to your primary care provider (PCP) are an essential part of keeping your child healthy.These exams include immunization updates and various health and development screenings. You can also schedule a sports physical with us!
Avoid the last-minute rush and make an appointment soon. When you schedule the appointment, let your doctor’s office know if you need immunization and other records for school purposes. If you have a school form to submit, fill out as much of it in advance. This will leave more time for you, your child and your child’s primary care physician to focus on health.
Immunize the Whole Family
Adults also need immunizations to stay healthy and keep children healthy. By being vaccinated, adults help protect people around them, especially infants and people with chronic conditions or weakened immune systems.
At PacMed, our pediatric providers will become your partner in your child’s health. Call us at 1.888.4.PACMED (1.888.472.2633) to schedule your child’s appointment or visit us here. Please verify covered services with your insurance company prior to making an appointment.
