One way to keep your kids healthy is to make sure they have regular check-ups and vaccines. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children have a well-child visit on the following schedule:

Newborn, 2-5 days 6 months 18 months
1 month 9 months 24 months
2 months 12 months 30 months
4 months 15 months Annually between 3 and 18 years old


Protect your kids from the flu – everyone 6 months and older should get a flu shot every year. An annual flu shot protects against seasonal strains of the influenza virus.

It’s separate from the Coronavirus vaccine. Talk to your kids’ doctor about getting you and your kids the flu shot.
