When the snow has melted away and the birds start chirping we know that spring is approaching and summer is not too far away. Get ahead of your summer/fall activity planning and schedule your child's physical ahead of time. 

Make sure your child is up to date with vaccines. At the 11-year-old visit we recommend the 3 adolescent vaccines including Tdap, Meningitis, and HPV.

At the 16-year-old visit we give a booster for meningitis, and we initiate the Meningitis Type B vaccine series.
