Get Well-Child Checkups During the Back-to-School Rush

Summer is such a great time of year! The days are long and warm. Children get to spend time with friends outside of school. You get to spend time with family. Summer camp options abound and there are new sports to try. Everyone gets to enjoy the beautiful Colorado sunshine and all the things that go with it. And hopefully, everyone is healthy. But when summer break starts to wind down, it’s important to make your child’s back-to-school checkup appointment.

If your child hasn’t had a checkup yet this year, think about making an appointment now before school starts up again. Well-visits are instrumental in tracking how well your child is growing and ensuring all necessary vaccinations to attend school are up to date. In addition, these visits are ideal opportunities to manage conditions like asthma or address any other health concerns you may have. Annual provider visits are one of the most effective ways to keep your child healthy for years to come, so make your appointment today.
