Each summer, as the start of school nears, many clinics report an overwhelming volume of students seeking school physicals, sports physicals or who need immunizations to attend school. Often this unusually high demand for preventative services in August can result in interruptions to the flow of normal operations in the clinic. KHC has partnered with KHA and KDHE to encourage parents to seek childhood immunizations and wellness visits this summer, before the Back to School rush. 
Use these printable PDF Posters in your community to encourage families to beat the rush to get school physicals, sports physicals, immunizations, dental visits, eye exams as well as all the other tasks that go along with getting the kids ready to start school in August. 
Encouraging families to seek preventative services early not only allows clinics to help staff appropriately throughout the summer, but allows the clinic to generate predictable revenue during the summer months when sick visits tend to decline.  Encouraging families to beat the rush will help prepare them for Back to School, increase immunization rates and hopefully minimize the last minute services needed the week before and after school starts.
