Preparing for Camp: Last Minute Physicals and Vaccinations

Thursday, June 20th, 2019

Summer is a very busy time of year, especially if you have children and work outside the home. It is very easy for dates to sneak up on you and catch you unprepared. Due to insurance purposes and other concerns, most summer camps require that your child is up to date on vaccinations as well as have a complete physical. When it’s the day before camp and you discover you’ve forgotten about these important requirements, it can lead to a panic.
