Back-to-School and Sports Physicals

Going back to school or participating in sports means it’s time for kids to get physicals so they’re up to date on immunizations and ready to go.

Norton Children’s Medical Group pediatrician offices provide physical and mental checks, as well as vaccinations to current and new patients. Making your pediatrician office your kid’s medical home provides consistent care with medical providers who know them and their history.

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
  • Mental health screenings, depending on the child’s age
  • Immunizations as needed
  • Completion of forms needed for sports or school participation
