The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment just sent out a news release entitled "Parents urged to make appointments for back-to-school vaccinations." In the article, it states:

Specific immunizations are required for children entering childcare, pre-school, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten, and for children in other grades enrolling in a Colorado school for the first time. For a list of required immunizations, visit http://www.immunizeforgood.com. Questions about school policies on when or how immunization certificates must be provided should be directed to local schools.

If your child had a Well Child Check with Sports Physical in the past year, that certificate is good for 365 days. However, many student's sport's physical forms expire in August - don't let your child get caught without permission to practice!

Give us a call at 970.626.5123 today to get your child's annual well child check appointment scheduled. If you have insurance, make sure you call the number on the back of the card prior to your appointment to verify coverage for preventative care (well child checks). Most insurance policies do cover this. If you don't have coverage or don't have insurance, the cost for a sports physical is $58, paid in full at time of service.

We hope to see you (and your children) soon!
