Get Your Kids Back-to-School Ready!

Kids will be heading back to classrooms soon. Is your child prepared with school supplies, masks and hand sanitizer? What about vaccinations?

Norton Children’s Medical Group pediatrician offices are ready to provide physicals and vaccinations to current and new patients.

It is important to continue your child’s routine care. Well-child, immunization, vaccination, development and mental health screenings are vital to your child’s growth.

A back-to-school or sports physical will vary based on your child’s age and typically includes:

  • Review of the child’s medical history
  • Routine physical examination
  • Immunizations as needed
  • Completion of forms needed for sports or school participation
