Give your child a healthy start to the school year with a checkup!


Watch the video below to learn how a back-to-school checkup helps your child have a healthy start to the new school year!

Video transcript:

Did you know that most schools require students to be up to date with their vaccines before the new school year?

Make sure your child is ready. You can begin by calling your child’s doctor. Ask what vaccines your child needs and schedule an appointment. This is also a great time for your child to get their checkup. Checkups are an important part of your child’s development.

Appointments can be scheduled far in advance, so call your child’s doctor today!

Visit our Checkups page for more information on checkups for children and teens.

Your child may be able to get a gift card for going to the doctor with our Healthy Start program!
