Well Child Schedules

Your care team at Rainbow Pediatrics believes in the importance of regular check-ups to keep your child well.

By scheduling the following regular appointments we are able to provide preventative exams and vaccinations. By doing this, we can increase the probability to catch any health issues early. It also gives the parents the ability to ask questions throughout every stage of development of your child.

We follow the American Academy of Pediatrics Guidelines for the schedule of the following well visits and immunizations. Feel free review information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) should you have any questions about the benefits and risks of any particular vaccine.

The following schedule for your well-child visits details the list of the immunizations that are needed for each age group.
