As children grow, they will face unique challenges and will require constant medical intervention in the form of medication and regular health checks. At Bega Medical Centre, we take a holistic approach to your child’s health. Apart from medication and other medical services, we also stress the need for a healthy and active lifestyle, including good sleep, complete immunizations and more.
Since children are more susceptible to diseases, vaccinations are critical to keep not only your child safe from illnesses but also ensure they don’t spread any disease to other vulnerable children. The Australian government’s national immunization program (NIP) provides a complete list of all the vaccines your child must through the years.
The very first vaccination your child will receive is the Hepatitis B vaccine, which will be administered at birth. Within the child’s first year, they will receive a series of vaccines. As they get older, the vaccines will be more spread out. As a parent, you need to keep a detailed record of all the vaccines your child has received and all the ones he/she need to get in the future.
Regular visits to the doctor will also help your child feel comfortable about going to the doctor and it will no longer be a scary prospect. We will do our part to facilitate a friendly, caring atmosphere to further acclimate your child.
At Bega Medical Centre, our doctors will work with you and prioritise your Child’s Health, ensuring they are up to date with all their vaccines.
Apart from vaccinations, regular health checks are also crucial so the doctor can review your Child’s Health and see if there are any issues that need to be addressed. Proper nutrition is an integral part of a child’s development and regular health checks will help identify if they are lacking any specific nutrients. If that’s the case, the doctor can then prescribe supplements or dietary instructions to ensure they don’t lack any important nutrients.
Bega Medical Centre has paediatricians and healthcare professionals specialising in child health, so you can be assured that we will do our best to keep your child healthy. From when your baby is born, you can bring him/her to us and we’ll provide your child the best care and service that they deserve.
