Keep Your Teen Healthy
Adolescents or teens (ages 13-18) are often very healthy. That may be one reason this age group is less likely to have well care visits with their primary care provider (PCP).
But you’ll want to make sure your teen has well care visits, even during the pandemic. The teen years are a time of great change. It’s also the time when kids may try risky behaviors or start unhealthy habits (such as smoking, poor food choices and lack of exercise) that may affect their health now and later in life.
The PCP can also make sure your teen’s shots are up to date before your child heads back to school.
