As part of our commitment to delivering high quality medical care, the staff at Center City Pediatrics believes that periodic well checkups during infancy, childhood and adolescence are essential. These visits are important to assess your child’s growth and development and to discuss all of the topics that contribute to a healthy childhood. Below you will find more information about what you can expect at your newborn visit.
Center City Pediatrics is a vaccinating practice. We follow the immunization schedules recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. At your child’s newborn visit, they will most likely be administered the Hepatitis B vaccine. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has prepared a Hepatitis B Vaccine Information Statement you can review in advance of your visit for more information.
There are a number of topics relevant to you newborn’s growth and development that your provider will discuss with you at this visit. You will find some of these highlighted in our Medical Library.
We look forward to seeing you!
