Immunization Program
 
The Kewaunee County Public Health Department REQUIRES appointments for upcoming immunization clinics. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call (920) 388-7160.

Making sure that children of all ages receive all their vaccinations on time is one of the most important things that can be done to ensure children's long-term health, as well as the health of friends, classmates, and others in the community. Immunization is the best way to protect your children from 16 potentially harmful, sometimes deadly, diseases. Children in Wisconsin are required to be vaccinated against diseases like measles and whooping cough before they can enter school.

We encourage parents to make sure that their children are up-to-date on their immunizations and to bring them in as soon as possible if they need vaccines. To check the immunization status of your child, you can contact the Kewaunee County Public Health Department, your health care provider, or visit the Wisconsin Immunization Registry website and look up your child's immunization record.
 
School and Day Care Requirements: Wisconsin law requires that children in licensed day care centers and students through grade 12 be vaccinated according to their age and grade level. For information on the recent changes to the Wisconsin immunization law, check out the School Immunization Law link.

The Kewaunee County Public Health Department is no longer allowed to vaccinate individuals whose private health insurance provides vaccine coverage, regardless of co-pay or deductible.

Immunization Clinic Schedule:

Effective January 1, 2018 the Health Department will NO longer be holding immunizations clinics at the Algoma Public Library on the 3rd Wednesday of the month or at the Luxemburg Municipal Building on the 4th Wednesday of the month. There has been a steady decline of individuals seeking immunizations at our outlining clinics and we have had to make the difficult choice of suspending some of our community immunization clinics.

Kewaunee County Public Health Department will continue to hold immunization clinics at our office located at 810 Lincoln Street, Kewaunee. Clinics will be held Monday through Friday from 8:15 a.m. 4:00 p.m., please call (920) 388-7160 for availability and to schedule an appointment.
