    Okay, thank you! I couldnt remember what age they said she would need to go back, but I would like her to have a routine checkup done anyway!

    as far as i know they dont have anymore for a while. Only one my daughter will be getting is the Flu shot. I guess you could always schedule for atleas a check up if you wanted too. Alot of mothers do check ups for thier children every year

    There's a chart on the vaccine card she should have.

    Sadly not all vaccine cards have that. Neither of my son's cards have a vaccine schedule. It just has for the office to put the date recieved and the intials of who administered it.

    I think it varies. My doctor has them go every year until age 5. Then after that it's just when they need vaccines or are sick.

     You should take kids every year for a well child visit. I think one more set of shots before school maybe chiken pox booster.

     My Dr recomends and my insurance pays for a well care visit each year. (still doing this for my 13 y/o)  It's also good for adults. Just beacuse you don't need a shot or appear sick dosen't mean nothing is wrong.  IMO

    My insurance only pays for well care child visits every two yrs (unless medically fragile) after the age of 5. I personally think that just going to the doctor every year for him to tell me everything is good with my children is a waste of time and money. Not to mention their chance of exposure to children who are sick. If there is anything wong there will always be signs. There isn't anything that wouldn't be noticable. Now since I do have medical conditions that require monitoring I do go annually my husband on the other hand has only gone to his doctor twice since we've been married.
