Checkups

Well-child checkups are done to monitor your child’s growth and development, give vaccinations, screen for health problems, and let parents know what to expect as their children grow up.

Please let our staff know if you need a physical form or shot record printed for school, preschool, or daycare. There is no charge to print them at your visit, but there is a $3-$5 charge to print them otherwise.

Most checkups include vaccinations (shots). These are given to immunize your child against diseases which are debilitating or fatal to children. For more information about childhood vaccines, you may visit the Centers for Disease Control website: www.cdc.gov/vaccines

The most common side effects of vaccines are redness and swelling at the injection site. We recommend giving acetaminophen (Tylenol) when you get home, every 4 hours. You may also put cool washcloths on the area. Older children may be given diphenhydramine (Benadryl) for local reactions. Please call us if you are unsure about giving these medications.
