Immunization Information

Immunizations are considered one of the greatest medical achievements for the 20th century. Vaccines prevent disease in people who receive them and protect those who come in contact with unvaccinated individuals. Diseases that once killed many children and adults are rarely seen today because of immunization. But these diseases are still around, especially in other parts of the world. Vaccination continues to be one of the most important things you can do to protect your child and yourself from dangerous diseases.

Public Health offers immunization against childhood and adult vaccine-preventable diseases.

When do children and teens need shots?

Looking for immunization records? 

You may be able to find your or your child’s immunization records using the Public Access on the Wisconsin Immunization Registry.

To find a record, you will need:

First and Last Name

Date of birth

And one of the following

                Social Security Number

                Medicaid ID number

                Health Care Member ID number

If you still cannot find the record, this brochure has some tips for finding old immunization records.

And here is a brochure with information on the Wisconsin Immunization Registry.
