If you’re like most parents, you probably greet the end of summer with a mixture of emotions. However, summer will be over before you know it – which means back-to-school time is just around the corner. Are you ready?
If you’re like most parents, you probably greet the end of summer with a mixture of emotions. However, summer will be over before you know it – which means back-to-school time is just around the corner. Are you ready? It’s important that your child has all of the necessary health checks and immunizations to participate in school, sports and club activities.
Any child who is enrolling in a Florida school for the first time must have proof that they received a physical examination within the past year. Likewise, certain vaccinations are required for all kids entering Florida public schools at different levels, and your child’s back-to-school physical is the ideal time to get up-to-date on those shots.
Get your child’s back-to-school and sports physicals from a board-certified family doctor or pediatrician. The exam is covered by most major insurance plans and includes the back-to-school physical, vaccinations, and the physical-exam form that schools and sports organizations require.
