New York, NY

As September approaches, NYC Health + Hospitals is encouraging 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 select locations in all five boroughs on different dates in late August.

“It’s important for students to have their annual checkups before or early in to the school year to make sure their health will support their academic success,” said Mitchell Katz, MD, President and CEO of NYC Health + Hospitals. “Good health starts at a young age. Children and adolescents should understand the value of ongoing primary care and carry that habit into their adult age.”

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, limiting screen time on computers and cellphones.
