Children, Adolescents & Young Adults

BlueShield of Northeastern New York's Children, Adolescent & Young Adult Program offers a variety of wellness seminars and support groups to help members and their families.

Programs range from one session to multiple sessions over several weeks. Typical information covered includes:

  • Health issues for young adults and how they can cope
  • Helpful hints for parents and adolescents dealing with stress

Immunizations (shots) protect your child from many serious diseases. They should be given at the recommended age – even if your child has a cold or minor illness at the time. Ask your healthcare provider when your child should receive these important shots. Also, inquire about additional immunizations for your child.
