Immunizations

Vaccinations are one of the most important methods of protecting our children from diseases and the complications that can occur from these diseases. Vaccinations are especially important for school-aged children because children in school are regularly in close contact with others who may or may not be protected from these diseases.

We encourage you to make an appointment with your child’s health care provider to get your child vaccinated.

Encourage your child’s health care provider to use the Wisconsin Immunization Registry and any vaccination records you have for your child to determine which vaccines your child needs. If your child does not have a health care provider, please contact your local health department to determine if your child is eligible to receive vaccinations at the health department. Local health department contact information can be found on this website: https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/lh-depts/counties.htm

Please be aware that your child’s vaccination records will be assessed to ensure that he/she is sufficiently vaccinated for his/her grade level or has a waiver on file. If sufficient documentation is not supplied for your child, he/she might be required to stay home from school. For additional information on vaccines and immunizations, please visit this website: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/default.htm

We appreciate your cooperation in keeping school children safe from diseases that can be prevented by vaccination.
