This year, don’t just get a “Sports Physical,” schedule an annual wellness exam.
Aren’t they the same thing? Well no, they are not. At an annual wellness exam, your healthcare provider will talk to you about more than just sports. They will discuss your entire body and include age-appropriate preventive screenings that can protect you from serious issues down the road. It’s a safe and private time to discuss things you can’t talk about with your friends and family.
For parents, this is an opportunity to make sure immunizations are up-to-date including required changes recently made by the Iowa Department of Public Health for the Meningococcal vaccine and Tdap booster needed by seventh graders before the start of the 2018-2019 school year. It’s also covered by insurance through the age of 18 in and in most cases through the age of 21.
After all, it’s more than sports, it’s your health and well-being for life. Call now to schedule an appointment with one of our providers and remember to bring your Iowa Athletic Pre-Participation Physical Examination form to the appointment.
