Why This Indicator Matters

Immunizations, screenings, regular dental care, well-child visits and access to nutritious food are all part of ensuring a healthy start for children. Well-child visits are important to ensure up-to-date immunizations in early childhood and should continue into middle childhood and adolescence, when it is especially important for mental and behavioral health assessments including depression screening.
