Child Health Clinic

For children 2 months of age to 21 years of age. The Child Health Clinic provides well child screenings, kindergarten and daycare. It is recommended that all children have regular well child screenings to ensure optimal health, growth and development. The following is the Macon County Public Health Center's recommended schedule for well child screenings:

  • 2 months
  • 4 months
  • 6 months
  • 12 months
  • 15 months (this screening may be done at 9 months instead)
  • 18 months
  • 2 years
  • Yearly after 2 Years Old

During a Child Health Clinic appointment, your child will receive a comprehensive screening which may include the following services:

  • Health history
  • Review of immunizations
  • Physical exam
  • Hearing and vision screening
  • Developmental screening
  • Assessment of growth
  • Health, safety, and nutritional counseling
  • Laboratory testing (hemoglobin, urinalysis, blood lead level and sickle cell)

Macon County Public Health Center accepts some insurance, Medicaid and NC Health Choice. However, if your insurance doesn't cover the cost of a well child screening, the cost for the Child Health Clinic will be based on a sliding fee scale.

To schedule an appointment for your child, call the Macon County Public Health Center at (828) 349-2081. For your convenience, we offer morning appointments, as well as early and late afternoon appointments.
