How we can help:
Well-child visits are highly important for children. These visits give physicians the opportunity to check that everything is fine with your child.
But what if your child’s primary pediatrician is not available or can’t work with your schedule? At NeuMed Urgent Care, we offer physical exams, screenings, and immunizations for every child that comes in for a well-child visit. Best of all, you don’t need to make an appointment. We are available 24/7.
Don’t postpone your child’s well-child visit. Routine checks can help prevent many health problems, especially when they are caught in the early stages.
Routine vaccinations can save your child’s life. Vaccines help kids build immunity against dangerous, deadly diseases. They contain germs that have been killed or weakened. Once inside the body, the immune system responds by creating T-cells that will remember these germs and fight them if your child ever gets exposed again.
At NeuMed, we offer the following immunizations:
- DTaP – a combination vaccine that protects against three types of life-threatening bacteria – tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (whooping cough).
- Influenza vaccine – everyone 6 months of age and older should get the flu vaccine every season, except kids with certain health conditions.
- Pneumovax – this vaccine prevents pneumococcal disease, an infection caused by the Streptococcus pneumoniae bacteria. The CDC recommends that this vaccine be given to all children younger than 2 years, and people 2 years or older with certain medical conditions.
At NeuMed Urgent Care, our board-certified physicians are experienced in treating ear infections in children. Your child may have an infection if they are constantly tugging or pulling on their ears, fussy, have trouble sleeping, or have a fever. The good thing is that you don’t have to schedule an appointment with us. We are available 24/7 to get those little ears checked.
