If you have put off doctor visits during the COVID-19 pandemic, now is a good time to visit your Kids First pediatrician and get caught up. Children and teens need regular checkups with their doctor to make sure their development is on track, to talk about nutrition and behavior, and to get the vaccines they need to stay healthy.
New COVID-19 vaccines offer families hope that everyday life, including school, can get back to normal.
Vaccines likely will not be available for most students anytime soon. The good news is that reopening schools for in-person learning does not seem to significantly increase community transmission of the virus.
Helping to make your family stronger, safer, and more harmonious may not require a complete overhaul, but rather a few strategic tweaks.
After any disaster or crisis, families struggle with what they should say to children and what’s best not to share with them.
