⦁ 3 to 5 days
⦁ 1 month

⦁ 9 months
⦁ 12 months
⦁ 15 months

We have provided a number of resources that give generalized indications of when to seek medical help for certain conditions. You can also use the American Academy of Pediatrics Symptom Checker. However, if you are concerned your child may be sick please do not hesitate to call the office. Our office staff will take a message and one of our nurses will call you back to help decide if your child needs to be seen urgently or if an appointment can be made.

Immunizations protect your child, your family and your community from potentially fatal childhood diseases. The American Academy of Pediatrics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and five other health care organizations annually review the recommended immunization schedule with the most current scientific data for each vaccine. Following this schedule gives children the best protection from diseases. View the AAP’s recommended Childhood and Adolescent Immunization Schedules below:
