We also administer PPD tests (Tuberculosis Skin Tests) based on risk factors. Please note that you must be able to bring your child back to our office 48-72 hours later to have the PPD read by one of our staff members.
Risk Factor Questionnaire:
- Was your child born in a high risk region? (Africa, Asia, Central America, South America or Eastern Europe)
- Has your child ever traveled to a high risk country for more than 1 week?
- Has a family member or contact had tuberculosis disease?
- Has a family member or close contact had a positive Tuberculin skin test?
If your child has any of these risk factors, please contact our office to set up an appointment to have a PPD test done.
Facilities and Equipment
We have sick and well waiting rooms with separate entrances. We also have a "Back Door" entrance for patients who may have contagious rashes. We have a treatment room to use for minor procedures and surgeries.
We believe immunizing your child is the most important step you can take to avoid the preventable infectious diseases of childhood. We endorse the current schedule of vaccines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Committee on Immunization Practices, and the United States Centers for Disease Control. This schedule and answers to many commonly asked vaccine questions can be viewed at the following websites.
Although the schedule may vary from child to child, these are the standard immunizations that we offer:
- Birth - Hepatitis B #1
- 2 months - DTaP/IPV/Hib #1, Hep B #2, PCV13 #1, Rotavirus #1
- 4 months - DTaP/IPV/Hib #2, PCV13 #2 , Rotavirus #2
- 6 months - DTaP/IPV/Hib #3, Hep B #3, PCV13 #3
At 12 months and after, the schedule may vary slightly:
- 12 months - MMR, Varicella, Hepatitis A #1
- 15 months - Hib #4, PCV #4
- 18 months - Hep A #2, DTaP #4
- 4 years - MMR #2, DTaP/IPV
- 5 years - Varicella #2
- 11 years - Tdap, Meningitis MCV-4 #1
- 11 years or older - HPV #1-2
- 16 - 18 years - Meningitis MCV-4 #2
- pre-college - Meningitis serotype B #1-2
We also recommend the influenza vaccine to be given to all children 6 months and older. The first time in your child's life that he or she receives the influenza vaccine (under 9 years of age), the vaccine is given twice with one month between doses. We offer the preservative-free, quadrivalent injectable vaccine, usually beginning in September.
