Why well visits?

Featured Image

Babies need a lot of wellness checkups to ensure their growth and development are on track. Akron Children’s pediatrician Alex Miksit, MD shares why well visits are essential during baby’s first year.

Well visits are important for toddlers, too. Kids should be seen for well visits at 12, 15, 18, 24 and 30 months. Your child will receive a physical exam at each visit, along with developmental screenings and any vaccines that are needed. 

From ages 3-21, the well visit schedule changes to once a year. Well visits include physical exams, any vaccines your child needs, age-related screenings, completion of sports/work/camp forms and much more. 

Vaccine schedule 
Vaccines are a safe and effective way to protect your kids. We follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention vaccine schedule for birth-age 6 and ages 7-18.
