VAXBaby 20: The truth about well-child visits

The 9-month checkup is very similar to previous checkups. Measurements, reflex tests, and a chance to ask your doctor questions about any concerns you have. By now, you will have realized the reason these visits exist are to administer shots, and not much more. Depending on how your previous well-child visits went, and which—if any—vaccines were administered, your doctor may have catch-up shots already waiting for your son or daughter.
