Where to Get Child & Teen Checkups

  • Your doctor or clinic. Call your own family doctor for an appointment. Be sure to ask specifically for a Child and Teen Check-up.


Some health plans have incentive programs (PDF) (such as Visa gift cards) for taking your child to the doctor for check-ups and/or immunizations. We can provide more information and vouchers on request.

Included in Checkups

  • Complete physical exam
  • Immunizations
  • Information about good physical health
  • Information about thoughts, feelings and relationships with others
  • Questions and answers about your child's health and development
  • Shots
  • Hearing check
  • Vision check
  • Lab tests
  • Checks on growth and development
  • Routine dental care, usually beginning with the first tooth, and no later than age 1

You may use Child and Teen Checkups for any required checkups or physicals for Head Start, WIC, school, daycare, sports, and camps. Be sure to bring any forms you need completed with you to your child's appointment.
