Your Annual Health Care Visit

Having an annual health care visit is a great opportunity to take charge of your health. Routine health care visits can help find problems early or prevent health problems before they occur. If problems are found early, they may be easier to treat and less likely to pose serious risks to your health. Preventive health care includes the following:

  • Discussion of health topics relevant to your age and risk factors
  • Exams and screening tests
  • Immunizations

To see the health topic discussions, exams and screening tests, and immunizations that are recommended for you, click on the appropriate age range below. 

If you have certain risk factors, you may need additional tests other than those recommended for your age group. Click here for more information on tests for high-risk women.

For more information about immunizations, go to www.cdc.gov/vaccines or www.immunizationforwomen.org.
