sports physicals campaign

Schedule your back-to-school physical today

Evening and weekend well-child appointments are available this summer to help you get those back-to-school checkups, immunizations, and clearance for sports off your to-do list.

A well-child check is a full annual physical, with review and clearance of school, daycare, and sports physical paperwork, if needed.

New patients are welcome. Parents or guardians of new patients are strongly encouraged to bring a copy of the child’s immunization history to the appointment.

Not sure if your child's immunizations are up-to-date?

In Iowa, children who attend child care centers or are enrolled in school must show their immunization records to attend any facilities licensed by the state. The following guidelines generally apply:

  • Hep A to protect against hepatitis A
  • Hep B to prevent hepatitis B
  • DTaP to protect against diphtheria, tetanus (lockjaw) and pertussis (whooping cough)
  • Flu to protect against influenza (yearly)
  • Hib to protect against Haemophilus influenzae type b
  • IPV to prevent polio
  • MMR for measles, mumps and rubella (German measles)
  • Pneumococcal to protect against pneumococcus (causes pneumonia and other diseases)
  • Varicella to prevent chickenpox

More information on how immunizations help kids can be found here. You can also learn more about when in your child's life they should receive certain vaccines here.
