KEEP CHILDREN HEALTHY DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

BRING YOUR CHILD FOR THEIR HEALTHCARE VISITS
Routine well-child visits and vaccine visits are essential, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
-Prepare for your child’s healthcare visits
Call your child’s healthcare provider to ask about any upcoming appointments or to ask when your child’s vaccinations are due.
-Ask your child’s healthcare provider what steps they are taking to separate healthy patients from those who may be sick. Some healthcare providers may choose to delay in-person visits, which will be based on the situation in your community and your child’s individual care plan.
-Notify your child’s healthcare provider before your visit if you or your child have any symptoms of COVID-19.
