Why Vaccinate?

On-time vaccination throughout childhood is essential because it helps provide immunity before children are exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases. Vaccines are tested to ensure that they are safe and effective for children to receive at the recommended ages.

Did you know that you have access to your or your child’s vaccine records online?

The Wisconsin Immunization Registry, also called WIR, allows patients, parents, and guardians of children to view their vaccine record and keep track of their vaccines.


To help our staff maintain health and better coordinate response to COVID-19, our Tuesday Immunization Clinics are CANCELLED until further notice.

We are not providing any Influenza Vaccines!

If you are in need of vaccinations, please reach out to your primary care doctor or local pharmacy. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you and your families.

If you have insurance that covers vaccines, you will need to make an appointment with your physician to get vaccinated.

The health department can provide immunizations for:
  • Children who have no insurance
  • Children who are enrolled in Medicaid
  • Children who are Native American/Alaska Native
  • Children who have insurance that does not cover a particular vaccine
  • Adults who have insurance that does not cover Td/TdaP vaccine

Children and Adolescents: All routinely recommended vaccines are available.
Adults: Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis or whooping cough) and Td (tetanus) are available.

$10.00 per vaccine
(unless covered under Medicaid)

TB (Tuberculosis) SKIN TESTS:
$30.00 per administration
TB Skin tests are done to determine if you have been exposed to the TB Bacteria. Most tests are done as a condition of employment or prior to enrolling in a health care related field of study. When receiving a TB Test, you must be available to come back 48-72 hours after initial test to get results read. We also provide the two step TB Skin tests.
