Immunizations are important for everyone, at all ages. We provide vaccines to reduce the spread of disease in our community and to protect health.

Childhood Vaccine Requirements

Diseases are easily spread in group settings of children. Wisconsin law requires some vaccines for childcare settings to help protect from these diseases. If your child has received all recommended vaccines for their age, they will meet childcare requirements.


The Wisconsin Student Immunization Law PDF says that all students through grade 12 are required to have certain vaccines based on their grade and age. It is important that your child is up to date on vaccines so they don’t miss school.
