Children returning to school

A new school year, and new care needs


Getting your children ready for school is our job, too

Again this year, the COVID-19 pandemic is on parent’s minds as they prepare their children for the new school year. With COVID-19 vaccines and other positive factors signaling that a better year may be ahead, you’ll want to make sure you’ve checked all the important boxes for preserving your child’s good health.

AdvantageCare Physicians (ACPNY) is dedicated to delivering whole-you care to your children, and their annual back-to-school check-up is a part of that. We’ll take a look at your child’s total health picture – how they’re doing physically and emotionally, what their diet is like, and how active they are. The start of the school year is the best time to reassess your child’s health status and set appropriate health goals.


For extra credit, your child should get a flu vaccine

The 2021-2022 seasonal flu vaccine is a necessary and safe measure to protect your children from the potentially dangerous flu. Children with serious health problems like asthma, diabetes, and immune disorders are even more vulnerable to infection, and the seasonal flu vaccine should be part of a yearly routine to keep them healthy.
