What to Expect During a School Physical
Your child’s physical will include a variety of tests and measurements, including but not limited to, vision, hearing, height, weight and other vitals. The doctors encourage parents to share any concerns they may have about their child’s health and development. In addition, doctors take time to explain to parents the number of germs, bacteria and illnesses that are present in the school environment which warrant school physicals and the administering of vaccines. At DOCS Urgent Care in Southington we provide school physicals and appropriate vaccines as well as ongoing medical care throughout the school year.
What should I bring to the physical?
When you bring your child in for their physical be sure to bring with you their immunization records and a list of any medications they take as well as any school forms that need to be filled out and signed by the doctor. If your child requires a specific vaccination at their physical, we would ask that you call us ahead of time to ensure that we have the vaccine available.
