Information on AAP Schedule of Well-Child Care Visits

Parents know who they should go to when their child is sick. But pediatrician visits are just as important for healthy children.

The Bright Futures/American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) developed a set of comprehensive health guidelines for well-child care, known as the "periodicity schedule." It is a schedule of screenings and assessments recommended at each well-child visit from infancy through adolescence.

Vaccination Rates

The Vermont Department of Health collects vaccination coverage data from all Vermont public and independent schools. Vaccination coverage, or the percent of people who have received particular vaccines, is measured at national, state and local levels. The Immunization Program reviews data to assess vaccination coverage, identify populations at risk and measure the impact of current initiatives. - Vermont Department of Health
