It's understandable to be nervous, but please don't skip your child's check up during COVID-19

Thursday Jun 11th, 2020

We encourage families to schedule over-due and upcoming visits right away. Well-child visits are very important for ALL kids, especially those 24 months and younger, and our best advice is to keep those appointments.

During the first 2 years of life, we give children much needed vaccines that help prevent diseases like measles, polio, whooping cough, meningitis and pneumonia.  Vaccinations not only protect your child, but they also keep other children safe by eliminating or greatly decreasing dangerous diseases that used to spread from child to child. Along with vaccines, well-visits are also a time when we screen for lead poisoning and check for important growth and developmental milestones.

We continue to have measures in place to provide a safe environment for your child during their visit with us. These include COVID screening questions prior to visit, temp checks and masking for all staff, providers, patients and parents. We ask that only one parent attend with the child if possible.
