CDC Immunization Schedule for Adults

Please schedule your child for a Well Child Examination to address these and many other health issues before the next school year. Girls ages 16 and over may schedule a pap smear at the same time, and address birth control issues as well. If your insurance covers preventative care, we can also complete any school forms at the time of your office visit, saving you the fees of a “Sports Physical.” Forms presented on another day will likely be charged a “medical records” fee.
