During your check up is when most immunizations would be administered if needed. As your child starts to get older they will offer vision screening as well as apply a topical fluoride to their teeth. Your provider team can address any concerns that you may have in regards to your child’s health
Your provider team will work with you to make sure your child gets all necessary vaccinations. Please refer to our Immunization schedule
