Did you know that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children be seen by their doctor at least once a year? As children grow, it is important for their doctor to monitor their overall health. This helps detect health concerns before they worsen or your child requires a trip to the emergency department. Regular check-ups are also a good way for children and parents to build relationships with their doctor.
The new school year will be here before we know it, and many kids will need a physical exam before they can go back to school or participate in sports. A physical exam fulfills the same need as an annual check-up. Depending on your child’s age and medical history, these appointments can include a physical exam, eye exam, hearing exam and lab tests. This is also a perfect time to make sure your child is up-to-date with all recommended immunizations.
Proof of immunizations on a Form 680, which can be obtained at the Orange County Health Department: 832 W. Central Blvd., Orlando, FL. The phone number is 407-836-2600. These forms must be completed by a Florida physician or a Florida county health department.
Proof of physical examination by a U.S. doctor within the last year. If documentation cannot be provided, a physical examination must be obtained within 30 days of enrollment.
We are pleased to announce that due to funding provided by the Winter Park Health Foundation, the School-Based Health Center located at Winter Park High School will be open for two weeks in July to provide nurse practitioner services.
The dates of service are July 17-20 and July 24-27 from 8:30am-2:30pm. Services are available by appointment only.
Since the health center is normally closed over summer, this is a great opportunity to get your student’s school entry or sports physical examination BEFORE the start of school. You are encouraged to call on Thursday July 13 to schedule an appointment. We will have someone available from 8:30-2:30 on site to schedule appointments for the following two weeks.
