​Well-Child Visits and Immunizations. Another way we take care of children.

Family(French Camp, CA) – Shelter in place caused many of us to put off appointments for regular health checkups for ourselves and our children.

Unfortunately, this caused a steep decline in accessing preventative health services for children now. While this has Health Plan of San Joaquin and many doctors concerned, our community can change these numbers for the better. HPSJ local provider offices and clinics have safely reopened, and parents can feel good by making appointments for well-child visits now that precautions have been established. Well-child visits are the perfect time to get up to date on your child’s immunizations.

Health screenings that identify disease and conditions in their most treatable stages are also provided during wellness visits. Some of these screenings include tests and assessments for vision, hearing, special education needs, asthma and blood lead screenings for children by their 6th birthday.

Health Plan of San Joaquin (HPSJ) is committed to encouraging individuals and families to schedule their primary care, well-child and other clinical visits with their primary care physician. Additionally, HPSJ members are entitled to services that include transportation and language or interpretation supports. We will do our best to make it easy to keep you and your family healthy and safe.
