Exams/Vaccines & Ear Piercing

Capitol Medical Group works with all children

 

Physical Exams and Vaccinations

Physical exams are planned to coincide with the recommended schedule of immunizations. There will be at least one injection (shot) at each visit until 18 months of age. Our office follows the well-child visit schedule and vaccine schedule as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

At each well visit, your child’s development, height, weight, diet, behavior and medical status will be discussed with you. Instructions will be provided to you as indicated by the results of the assessment. Please review the provided VIS (Vaccine Information Sheets) for each visit describing the benefits and any side effects your child might have, located in the exam room and let your provider know if you may have any questions or concerns.  

It is essential that each child less than 18 years of age is accompanied by a parent or legal guardian for their routine and sick office visits.  If a parent or legal guardian can not be present, we require that the adult accompanying the child has written permission from the legal guardian to make any medical decisions (including vaccinations) on behalf of the child.  We will not be able to provide care to the child otherwise and the visit will need to be rescheduled.

Our schedule is open 3 months in advance. Please do not wait to schedule your physical exam appointments as availabilities will vary.

CHADIS
Before your physical appointment, please log on to the CHADIS website and fill out the age appropriate screenings. We now are offering screenings for all ages. At the time of your child's appointment, the practitioner will view and discuss your child's screenings.

CHADIS is a web-based screening, diagnostic and management system that administers and analyzes pre-visit, online questionnaires completed by parents, teens or teachers.
