MD Now Urgent Care Is the Smart Choice for Back-to-School Physicals and Vaccinations
Date:8/7/2014

West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 07, 2014

South Florida’s leading urgent care provider, MD Now Urgent Care, is gearing up for back-to-school physicals and vaccinations to give the community’s kids a healthy head start on the school year and provide them with protection from many preventable diseases. With school physicals and current vaccinations required by Florida schools, these are some of the most important “school supplies” a child can get. MD Now is currently offering these school physicals and vaccinations at its 18 locations throughout Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties to provide parents with maximum convenience as they prepare their children for a healthy school year.

Peter Lamelas, MD, CEO of MD Now Urgent Care says, “Between the rampant spread of germs among children and the recent influx of people into South Florida’s rapidly growing population, children are at a high risk of exposure to many germs and communicable diseases.”

Protection is such a priority that current vaccinations are required for admission into Florida schools. Each student must have The Florida Certification of Immunization forms completed by a Florida physician or a Florida County Health Department in order to be allowed in the classroom. Different vaccines are recommended for different ages and school systems, which is why it is always best to check with a child’s school and local healthcare provider to ensure that the child stays up-to-date on their vaccinations. Parents should take all of the necessary school forms to their child’s medical visit, including the school’s required yellow or blue physical examination forms and any updated immunization records.

Dr. Lamelas reminds parents that, “The requirement for school physicals and vaccinations results in doctors’ schedules filling up quickly, which makes it more difficult to get an appointment with a child’s pediatrician as the school year approaches.” Dr. Lamelas adds, “But MD Now Urgent Care operates on a walk-in basis with no appointment necessary. All of our medical centers are open from 8 AM to 8 PM every day of the year to provide South Florida’s children with a healthy advantage in school.”
