A new school year, and new care needs


Getting your children ready for school is our job, too

Going back to school may look different this year, but the care your child receives should be as constant and comprehensive as ever. Even if your child isn’t going back to a classroom, you want to make sure you’ve checked all the important boxes for preserving your child’s good health. AdvantageCare Physicians (ACPNY) is dedicated to delivering whole-you care to your children. That means we understand your child’s total health picture—how they’re doing physically and emotionally, what their diet is like, and how active they are. The start of the school year is the best time to reassess your child’s health status and set appropriate health goals.


For extra credit, your child should get a flu vaccine

Your child’s flu vaccine is just one part of a yearly routine to keep them healthy. Regardless of where your child’s learning may take place this year, a seasonal flu vaccine is still important. Children with serious health problems like asthma, diabetes, and immune disorders are even more vulnerable to infection and should be protected with a flu vaccination.


The 2020-2021 season flu vaccine is a necessary and safe measure to protect your children from the potentially dangerous flu now and into the next year.
