Protect Your Children

Getting a series of shots can help keep your children from getting certain kinds of harmful diseases. These shots, or immunizations, help your children become immune to some diseases. Not all immunizations are shots. Some are given as a few drops into the child’s mouth.


Doctors have developed a schedule that shows when children should get their immunizations.


Before children can go to daycare or school, their immunizations must be up-to-date. Be sure to check the Wisconsin Department of Health Services website for the school and daycare requirements.

Information about Immunization Safety

Some parents are worried that vaccines are not safe to give their children. This question has been studied very thoroughly. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has a website that provides safety information about vaccines.


If you have any questions about your child’s vaccinations, talk to your doctor or nurse.

Adult Immunizations 

Some immunizations need another (booster) dose for adults. This booster fully protects the adult. In addition, there are some shots (vaccinations) that are only given to adults. Whether the person needs a certain vaccination is based on age, sex, lifestyle, travel, long-term illness and other factors. View the suggested schedule.
