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 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 Screening
  • 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
  • Every two years after age 6.

Child and Teen Checkups can be used for medical checkups required for school, summer camps, Head Start, WIC, or child care facilities. Public Health can help families find local medical clinics, dental clinics, and make Child and Teen Checkup appointments and dental appointments. We can help.  Contact Kandiyohi Child and Teen Checkups at 320-231-7800 or email us at Our goal is to keep children healthy.
