Your children’s checkups Is it time for your children’s checkups? Or are they overdue for their checkups?

Shots Children also need their shots. This includes flu shots. But there are shots for other important diseases too, such as chickenpox and measles. Any many others.

Screenings Does someone in your family need a screening? COACH for Kids will provide any combination of screenings you need. Screenings for immunizations, for height and weight, for hemoglobin.

Worried! Many parents are worried. They’re afraid to take their children to the doctor because of COVID-19. This is understandable.

Very careful Doctors, nurses, and other medical staff are being very careful. You can phone your doctor’s office and ask what they are doing to keep patients, parents, and themselves safe.

Another safe way There’s another way to get your children their checkups and shots.

COACH for Kids COACH for Kids provides free checkups, shots and other medical care to children.

This includes newborns, children and teenagers to the age of 18.
