For Infants, Children & Teens
Public Health is offering immunizations, including flu shots, on a limited basis to children 0-18. If your child is in need of vaccines and has BadgerCare or Medical Assistance, we ask that you first reach out to your child’s health care provider to obtain the immunizations. If your child is uninsured, please call us at (608) 266-4821 to schedule an appointment.
Although this decision was not arrived at easily, we will be unable to provide immunizations to adults until further notice. Please consider going to your healthcare provider, a pharmacy, or Concentra Occupational Health instead. While we understand that these alternatives may be more costly, we need to make difficult decisions in the prioritization of services.
A drive-through flu clinic will be available to Dane County children and adults who do not have insurance, ages 6 months and older, starting October 6th. The drive-through clinic will be located at the Alliant Energy Center Tuesdays through Saturdays. Check back for more details in the coming weeks.

Immunizations Required for Children in Daycare
To protect young children in group settings where diseases are easily spread, Wisconsin law requires some immunizations for daycare at ages that children are most vulnerable. If your child has received all recommended vaccines for their age, they will meet daycare requirements also.
Immunizations Required for Children in School
The WI Student Immunization Law says that all students through grade 12 are required to have certain immunizations based on their grade and age.
