Keep your kids healthy by scheduling regular well-child visits with their doctor. Well-child visits are a way for your child’s doctor to see them before health issues start so they can stay healthy. At well-child visits, your doctor can:
- Give a lead poisoning test and vaccines
- Measure your child’s height, weight and body mass index (BMI)
- Find health and learning problems early
