You want the very best for your child and that’s why we recommend following the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines for well child exams and immunizations. At each exam we’ll check your child’s growth, well-being and development, as well as offer guidance on nutrition, sleep, safety and other important topics. These visits are a great opportunity to learn more and ask questions about your child’s health. We can also answer your questions about why immunizations are needed and when to schedule.

Schedule of exams and immunizations

This schedule of preventive care and immunizations helps you know what to expect and prepare your child at each age. Well child appointment schedules vary depending on your child’s needs. Follow your pediatrician’s recommendations.

Reliable vaccine resources

Be well informed. If you have questions, talk with your pediatrician about the benefits and potential risks to vaccines, and to get accurate vaccine information. If you want to do more research, use these reliable vaccine resources from trusted experts including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and American Academy of Pediatrics.
