Well Visit – 10-14 years
Well Visit Preparation
Please take a few minutes to complete and consider the following, which will help you optimize your time in our office.
Vaccines Typically Administered and Procedures
We do a urine screen every year at this age. This test is in part a screen for type 1 diabetes, as well as other issues. Encourage your child to drink well the days prior to the visit to reduce “false positives” and the need to repeat the urine.
We do a hemoglobin via finger prick every 2 years whenever possible. This helps us screen for anemia, including iron deficiency anemia.
At age 11, we begin discussing the following vaccines:
- Tdap (Tetanus, Diptheria, acellular Pertussis). This vaccine is required by 7th grade.
- Meningococcal Vaccine
- Human Papillomavirus Vaccine
