CHDP & Vaccinations
The CHDP program offers complete wellness assessments for the early detection and avoidance of condition and impairments for low-income youngsters and youth. A health analysis consists of a health and wellness record, physical exam, developing evaluation, dietary assessment, dental evaluation, vision and hearing tests, a tuberculin test, laboratory examinations, booster shots, wellness education/anticipatory guidance, and reference for any type of needed diagnosis and procedure.
The CHDP program manages the screening and follow-up components of the government mandated Early and Periodic Testing, Medical diagnosis, and Procedure (EPSDT) program for Medi-Cal qualified youngsters and youth. For more information, please visit the Health Care Services of California.
