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? We can help by ensuring that your child has all of the necessary health checks and immunizations to participate in school, sports and club activities.
Required Physicals, Vaccinations and Booster Shots by Age Group
Any child who is being enrolled in school for the first time in Florida 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.
You can get your child’s back-to-school and sports physicals from one of AdventHealth Medical Group’s board-certified family doctors or pediatricians. 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.
