For Work, School & Travel
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.
If You Need Immunizations for Work
Do you need vaccines for your job? Check with your doctor or look in the Wisconsin Immunization Registry to see what you've already had.
Some adult vaccines are free at our clinics if you do not have insurance that covers vaccines. See if you qualify for our Adult Immunization Clinics.
Child Care Providers
It is recommended that all child care workers get these immunizations to protect themselves and the children in their care.
Health Care Workers and Long Term Care Providers
Some immunizations are required, and others are recommended to protect you and your patients.
Immunizations Needed for Daycare and School
To protect children in group settings where diseases are easily spread, Wisconsin requires some immunizations for school and daycare.
The Wisconsin Student Immunization Law says that all students through grade 12 are required to have certain immunizations based on their grade and age.
Some children can get free immunizations at PHMDC's Child Immunization Clinics.
Immunizations Needed for Travel
