Although, vaccines are an important part of a well child check, we do much more at your child’s physical than administer vaccines. This is an important time to assess growth, development, health, and safety. For this reason and to ensure we have reviewed your child’s immunization record and determined which shots are due, we administer routine vaccines during a well child check. If your child is unable to receive shots the day of their physical, we will arrange a visit for him or her for the necessary shots. As a general rule we do not do immunization-only visits for children who have not had a physical within the previous year.
