Pediatrician in Charlotte, NC
Let us take care of your child from the beginning. Centro Médico Latino is there during infancy, throughout childhood, and into adulthood. Health comes first, and monitoring the health, growth, and development of babies helps to keep them healthy and on track to lifelong wellbeing.

CDC Vaccines for Children: Free for Those in Need
We recommend that you visit http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/vfc/index.html. The CDC, or Center for Disease Control and Prevention, has a program called “Vaccines for Children.” VFC is a federal program that provides free vaccinations to children who don’t have insurance in Charlotte (uninsured children), as well as children whose insurance doesn’t cover the vaccines necessary to stay healthy and prevent the spread of disease (underinsured children).
Here at the affordable Centro Médico Latino, our pediatric care team is happy to provide you with the full range of vaccinations so that your child stays healthy, no matter what your budget or insurance situation. These vaccinations prevent your child from getting sick with 16 different diseases, many of which can be life threatening and spread quickly amongst communities.
