Child and Teen Checkups

Public Health provides outreach for the preventive healthcare program Child and Teen Checkups (C&TC). Minnesota's C&TC Program entitles children and teens, birth to 21 years of age, who are enrolled in Medical Assistance, PrimeWest or MinnesotaCare to cost-free annual healthcare checkups.

These checkups for infants, children and teens are thorough health checkups done by the individual's own healthcare provider.  The checkups include:

  • History and Physical Exam
  • Immunization Review
  • Growth and Development Screening
  • Vision and Hearing Screeninglogo CTC colors black
  • Lab Work
  • Health Teaching.

Child and Teen Checkups should be given: 

  • Between birth and 1 month
  • At 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18 months
  • At 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 years
