Are your children up to date with their well-child visits and recommended vaccinations?
A well-child visit is a time where parents/guardians can get a check-up on their children’s development and growth. During the visit, they can voice any concerns and questions they may have.
Well-child visits are essential for many reasons. A visit may include getting scheduled vaccinations and discussing milestones, social behaviors and learning with the pediatrician. Well-child visits can help create trustworthy relationships between child, parent, and pediatrician.
Well-child visits start as early as 3-5 days after birth and can continue up to the age of 18. It is best to get prepared before the baby is born, by finding a doctor you are comfortable with and know will give your child the best possible care.
Recommended vaccinations begin after the child is born. It is important to keep up with them so that your child is protected from diseases that are easily spread. If you are unsure of which vaccinations are recommended for your child, talk with your healthcare provider.
Let’s keep our children growing healthy and strong. Making sure they get their well-child visits and recommended vaccinations is one of the best things you can do for your child. Schedule that visit today!
