Pediatric physicals are important health assessments that ensure that a child is healthy enough to participate in a specific activity. They may be needed from the moment that your child enters a daycare and well into adulthood.
Babies and toddlers often require clean bills of health on physicals to enter daycares or preschools. Later, they will need physicals to get into kindergarten and grade school. Typically, these physicals must prove that the child is healthy enough to participate in typical activities, is free of diseases that could be passed to other children and is up-to-date on immunizations. Even into the middle school, high school and college years, children and teenagers need physicals for school.
Many jobs also require teenagers to turn in paperwork showing that they are healthy enough for the requirements of the job.
Of course, it is not just schools that require proper medical paperwork and immunization records. The military requires a health clearance before a teenager can join. Many jobs also require teenagers to turn in paperwork showing that they are healthy enough for the requirements of the job.
Children who attend summer camps, day camps, after-school programs, and sports leagues may also need physicals completed. This is often the case for Little League teams, soccer leagues, karate and martial arts, football teams and even cheerleading squads.
Those who plan to travel outside the country, such as for a missions trip or a high school class trip, will typically need health clearances. In addition, they may require certain extra immunizations depending on the country that they are visiting.
