Preventive Screenings and Immunizations
Getting routine exams, preventive screenings and immunizations are among the most important steps you can take to protect your health, prevent disease and improve your quality of life. Ask your doctor which screenings and immunizations you need, when you should have them and how often.
Well-child visits allow the doctor to check your child’s growth and development, and provide any needed vaccines. Your child's doctor will also look for developmental delays or problems, and talk with you about any concerns you may have.
The most important well-child visits are those in your child’s first 15 months of life. These include a visit as a newborn, 3–5 days after bringing the baby home, and again at months 1, 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, and 15. To learn more, visit healthychildren.org or TRICARE's Covered Services page.
