Well-child visits are a time when parents can check up on their child's health and make sure their child is growing and developing normally.  Well-child visits usually start a few days after children are born and continue until your child turns 18.

During a well-child visit, your doctor will:

  • perform a physical exam
  • give the child any necessary shots (immunizations or vaccinations)
  • track how your child is growing and developing (physically and behaviorally)
  • talk about illness prevention, diet and physical fitness, and health and safety issues

Schedule:

The recommended immunization schedules, per the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics, for children through adolescents aged 18 years are available in the link below.
