About Regular Check-Ups
Regular check-ups help you learn about your child’s development, health and safety, and what to expect in the months to come. They also help you keep track of vaccines and health checks, like hearing tests. They also give the doctor a chance to spot problems early.
If your child has an ongoing medical problem, like asthma or anemia, regular check-ups help you make sure your child is getting the right treatments and is staying as healthy as possible.
At each visit, the doctor will check your child’s height, weight, vision, hearing and teeth. Other tests may be done if needed, such as tests for lead, anemia and tuberculosis (TB).
Learn more about children’s check-ups at the
American Academy of Pediatrics website.
The schedule for shots can change from year to year. Your child’s doctor will tell you when to bring your child in for his next vaccine. Learn more at
