What to Expect
At your child’s 16 year visit, we will obtain your child’s weight, height and blood pressure and perform vision and hearing screenings. We will ask parents to briefly leave the room to give teen patients an opportunity to speak with their pediatrician confidentially.
Your child will fill out their own Pediatric Symptom Checklist and CRAFFT screenings to address behavioral and mental health concerns.
They will receive a meningitis ACWY and meningitis B vaccine, they will then receive their second meningitis B vaccine at their 17 year visit.
