Child well visits are a critical component of well rounded care. Growth tracking, immunizations, screenings & so much more occur during these times.
Parents who are able to come prepared with information, questions & paperwork organization will be able to make the most of well visits- while utilizing their time with Pediatric professionals wisely!
Not only are Universal Health Records (a 1 page snap shot of your child’s health stats) & immunization records good for health record keeping- they are also REQUIRED for Childcare – in the state of NJ.
Ask for a copy of immunization records at every visit – and record your child’s Universal Health Record date- so you can set a digital reminder for yourself for 10 months from that date – so you have 2 months to schedule & complete a well visit to receive an updated (required annually!) UHR.
