One well-child visit covers your child’s back-to-school or daycare visit, sports physical and their needed immunizations. So you can check one more “to do” off your list.
As a parent, you are a crucial member of your child’s care team. We value your insights because you know everything there is to know about your child.
With your help, Marshfield Children’s provides complete preventive care for your child from birth through adulthood when, where and how you want it by offering:
- Wellness exams to ensure your child stays healthy and strong.
- Immunizations available during check-ups for optimal preventive care and to make sure your child has everything they need before going to school or daycare.
- Sports physicals to make sure your child gets off on the right foot during practice.
- In select locations, you can schedule the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for your children 12 to 17 years old before or after their well-child visit. Talk to your care team to coordinate these appointments or use the My Marshfield Clinic app.

As a part of your child’s annual visit, we will work with you to help prevent common conditions that affect children. This includes providing immunizations that protect from common diseases, suggestions on how to make a safe environment for your child and discussing concerns about childhood obesity.
Immunizations and Childhood Diseases
The most important step we can take to protect your child from common diseases is to provide vaccinations.
Accidents account for a large percentage of childhood deaths. If you have any concerns, your child’s primary care doctor can talk with you about ways to make a safe environment.
If there are concerns about childhood obesity, your child’s pediatrician can discuss ways to provide healthy diets and regular exercise to your child.
Parent and Family Advisory Council (PFAC)
Our Parent and Family Advisory Council (PFAC) at Marshfield Children’s is based on the idea that our providers and health care teams are only able to provide the best health care possible by listening to feedback and opinions of the patients and families we serve. Our PFAC is made up of volunteer parents or loved ones who are part of a child’s care team. Your first-hand experience gives us invaluable insight and a unique perspective on opportunities that exist within our health system to better serve our younger patients.
