Keeping Kids Healthy: Immunizations & Well Child Visits
As we adjust to life in our new environment, I would like to remind families about the importance of staying up to date with immunizations and well child visits. While there is not yet a vaccine for COVID19, we do have vaccines that protect children from 14 other serious diseases. Delaying immunizations can put children at risk for these illnesses, especially for those children ages 2 and younger. Well child visits are also important for making sure children are on track with their development and growth. We also want to hear about any concerns that you have so we can ensure that your children are thriving and healthy.
There is understandable concern about the risk of exposure when leaving the house. At the Everett Clinic, we are working to make sure that families can continue to receive care in the safest way possible. We have designated sites that can see children for well child visits that are separate from areas that treat sick patients. We have adjusted schedules to minimize people in the waiting rooms. There are also options for video visits when an in-clinic appointment is not needed or not possible.
We are here for you! Please call if you have any questions or to schedule an appointment.
