    Kids of all ages, from toddlers to teenagers, can benefit from wearing a medical alert ID if they have a chronic medical condition like asthma, severe allergies, diabetes, autism, epilepsy, or a bleeding disorder.

    You can't always be there to protect your kid - but MedicAlert can. A kids' medic alert ID will speak for your child when they can't speak for themselves.


    Getting a kid to wear a medical ID can take some practice. Here are tips to make it easier:

    • Introduce the idea of a medical ID as early as possible.
    • Make it fun; let your child help pick out the style and color of their ID.
    • Make putting on the ID part of your child's morning routine.
    • Show them how to use their ID to tell others about their condition.

    If your child has sensory issues or won't wear a traditional kids medical ID, there are alternatives to the traditional kids id bracelet.

    • Consider a shoe tag - they stay put on your kid's shoes
    • ICE Tag stickers can be used anywhere - helmet, scooter, phone
    • For car travel, use a seat belt ID holder to signal that help is needed in an emergency

    For your child's safety, we highly recommend a protection plan. With a plan, you can keep a comprehensive digital health record for your child, so it's available in an emergency. If they can't speak for themselves, MedicAlert is their voice. We'll also call you if your child has an incident and you're not there. Your child's safety - and your peace of mind - are worth it.
