Check Ups & Vaccines

The physicians and staff at Capitol Pediatrics are advocates for your child’s well-being and strive to remain up-to-date on current advancements in the management of Pediatric illness and preventative care. In order to maintain the health of your child as well as other members of the community, we require our patients to complete the vaccination schedule as approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Below is the schedule of check-ups and vaccinations as provided and recommended by our office. Please feel free to discuss any questions or concerns you may have regarding preventative care, vaccines, or other minor issues at the time of your well-child visit. If you have any additional concerns that may require a lengthier or more involved discussion, we request that you make a separate appointment so that we can provide you and your child with the additional time and undivided attention you deserve.
