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 18-month visit.
Center City Pediatrics is a vaccinating practice. We follow the immunization schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics. At your child’s visit, they will likely be administered the Hepatitis A Vaccine. If your child did not receive the Pentacel Vaccine at 15 months, they may also be administered the HiB and DTaP Vaccines at this visit.
