Make an Appointment for Back-to-School Physicals and Vaccinations Today
As you and your family enjoy summer activities, keep in mind that now is a good time to make sure your children are up-to-date with their immunizations, physicals, dental, vision, and hearing checks. SCF provides physicals and vaccinations year round. Give yourself time to schedule appointments so your children are ready before school starts!
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends on-time vaccinations throughout childhood. Vaccinations are essential as they help provide immunity before children are exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases. Vaccines are tested to ensure they are safe and effective for children to receive at the recommended ages.
A helpful guide of what parents should know about vaccinations is available on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
Call your primary care provider to set up an appointment today by calling SCF Pediatrics (907) 729-1000 or Anchorage Native Primary Care Center (907) 729-3300.
