Immunizations

An annual flu shot is recommended for all children 6 months and older. After the age of two, routine physical exams are recommended every year. If your child chooses to participate in high school athletics an annual physical is required. We will keep a record of your child’s immunizations in the medical chart as well as in the state immunization registry. We encourage you to bring your child’s immunization record to each well child visit so that we may keep it updated for you.
