Well Child Exams and Immunizations

Immunizations are important for the health and well-being of your child.

The chart below is the typical schedule for most infants and children. Sometimes the schedule may have to vary due to health and other unforeseen events. The side effects from immunizations are rare and are usually not as bad as what could happen if they get the diseases you are immunizing against.

Children cannot attend most schools without most of their immunizations being administered. Dr. Trivedi will be more than happy to talk with you and work with you to make sure your child has the best care available.
