It’s Time to Schedule School Health Exams and Ensure Immunizations are Current
Chicago, Ill. – With the start of the school year just a few weeks away, it is important that parents schedule back-to-school health exams for their children now. The State of Illinois has several required forms to ensure that children have received their well visits and are current with immunizations.
“We urge parents to schedule appointments as quickly as possible because pediatric offices fill up in these last few weeks before school starts,” said Peter Lechman, MD, a Northwestern Memorial Physicians Group pediatrician based at the Northwestern Medicine Glenview Outpatient Center.
“This visit is an ideal time to discuss any health issues that may have arisen during the past year. Additionally, it is essential that your child has the necessary health forms completed to help ensure an easy transition back to school.”
