Below is the generally recommended schedule of routine Well Child Check-ups. Check-ups are also a great time to complete school, mission, and sports & camp physicals.
Choosing to Immunize Your Child
Our pediatricians know that immunizations save lives and help prevent complications and hospitalization from diseases. Many diseases that used to be a threat are now easily vaccine-preventable. However, some preventable diseases still exist largely due to the lack of immunizations. Protecting your child against serious illness is a critical piece of their overall wellness, and immunizations play a key role.
Scientific research consistently supports vaccine safety and effectiveness. Your healthcare provider will discuss any vaccine-specific considerations at your child’s visit, but the most common side effects after receiving vaccinations include low-grade fever and soreness at the site of the injection.
At Wasatch Pediatrics, we use combination vaccines whenever possible to deliver vaccines safely, with fewer overall injections. If you have questions about combination vaccines or alternative options, please ask your pediatrician.
After Hours Care
For your convenience, the majority of our offices provide After Hours Care on weeknights, weekends, and even holidays. These visits are for same-day urgent care concerns only and require an appointment (no walk-ins). Check our locations for office-specific hours information.
We also provide a 24/7 on-call nurse/physician line for urgent medical concerns by calling your office’s main number.
You can also find comprehensive, medically accurate advice on our website at any time if your child is sick or injured by getting guidance from the Symptom Checker.
