Well child visits and immunizations are a very important part of maintaining your child’s health. At these visits, we look not only for signs of illness or disease, but also we make sure that your child’s development is proceeding normally.
Usually, our well child visits are scheduled for ages Newborn, 1-2 weeks, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 24 months, 30 months and 3 years old. We then continue to see our patients on a yearly basis until age 18.
Immunizations are generally coordinated with well child visits and are a very important part of preventive care. These vaccines help prevent a number of potentially serious diseases. We administer vaccinations based on the current recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
