      Visit Your Doctor – Get Your Preventive Care and Shots

      Why visit the doctor for regular check-ups?
      We visit the doctor when we are sick or hurt so that we can get better, but doctors can help us when we’re not sick, too. Doctors can help us find the early warning signs of health problems so that we can change our lifestyles or take medications that will keep us from getting sick – or worse. We also get immunizations (shots) that keep us from getting diseases that can cause wide-spread sickness in our communities.Learn about preventive health guidelines for:
      Adults (PDF)
      Children (PDF)Learn about the shots you and your child need to stay healthy.

      Visit the CDC.gov website for immunization schedules, including:

      • Childhood Schedules (birth to 6 years old)
      • Adolescent Schedule (7 to 18 years old)
      • Adult Schedule (over 18 years old)
