Physicals, Immunizations, and Wellness Services Available City-Wide at Little or No Cost
NEW YORK– As the new school year approaches, NYC Health + Hospitals/Lincoln encourages parents and guardians to prepare their children for academic readiness by scheduling appointments for physicals, immunizations, vision and hearing tests, and other health services.
To make an appointment at any public health system location, parents and guardians are encouraged to call 1-844-NYC-4NYC (1-844-692-4692).
In addition to appointment availability, NYC Health+ Hospitals also invites families to visit Back-to-School Health Fairs, offered at Lincoln Medical Center on September 8, 2018, and at select locations in all five boroughs on different dates in August and early September.
“Parents and guardians should help kids prepare for a great school year by making sure they are healthy, up to date on their immunizations, well rested, and ready to learn,” said Warren Seigel, MD, chairman of Pediatrics at NYC Health + Hospitals/Coney Island. “We know that healthy students are better learners, and a healthy school environment gives all students the best chance to learn and grow.”
NYC Health + Hospitals also offers parents and guardians 7 health tips to help children get ready for the school year, including advice on vaccination requirements, flu shots, nutrition, sleep, setting routines, and limiting screen time on computers and cellphones.
