Now that the month of June has begun, my sons are looking forward to finishing school and starting their summer vacation. This will be an important time for them to enjoy the warm weather and to spend quality family time together. I also realize, however, that it is crucial that I make sure they are healthy and safe during these months as they prepare to engage in physical and outdoor activities.
Some kids will be attending day camp or sleep away camp and it’s important that they be deemed physically fit to participate in all camp activities. Our boys love to play sports so they will be playing basketball and enjoying the outdoors. Even if your child’s camp or sports team doesn’t require it, it is important to make sure that your kids are healthy enough to take part.
MinuteClinic is offering camp and sports physicals for just $39 for a limited time. This means that you will be saving $20 and you won’t even need an appointment. Whether your schedule permits you to come on evenings or weekends, they are available to get your child ready for all their summer activities every day. Here are some tips to help your child enjoy a safe and happy summer:
- Make sure your child always wears a helmet when riding a bicycle or scooter.
- Never leave children unattended around any body of water including pools, bathtubs, or beaches.
- Use sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 15 and apply to your child 20 minutes before sun exposure.
- Do not allow your children to play near or around the grill.
- Use insect repellent sparingly on older children and never on infants. Wash off the repellent as soon as your child comes indoors and avoid it getting anywhere near his or her face.
For more information about how you can keep your kids happy and healthy this Summer, make sure you visit the Minute Clinic website. Their quick and easy physical will prepare you or your child for camps of all kinds as well as sports activities. It’s one less thing for you to worry about so you can focus on having some fun in the sun with your family.
