As COVID-19 continues to impact us locally, we will be closing all Public Health Madison & Dane County offices to the public effective Thursday, March 19, 2020.
Although this decision was not arrived at easily, it is a decision that we needed to make. We are prioritizing preserving the health and safety of our staff and clients while continuing to maintain our ability to provide essential services, including our response to COVID-19.
We will continue providing services through alternate avenues, detailed below, but at this time we are reducing our direct contact with the public.
We will now begin to offer immunizations on a limited basis to children 0-18.
Although this decision was not arrived at easily, we will be unable to provide immunizations to adults until further notice. We are prioritizing preserving the health and safety of our staff and clients while continuing to maintain our ability to provide essential services, including our response to COVID-19.
Public Health Madison & Dane County is dedicated to reducing childhood vaccine preventable diseases. 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.
Because our immunization clinics will be much more limited, 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.
Thank you for your understanding and be well.
We give all childhood immunizations for free to infants and children (through 18 years of age) who:
If your child has insurance that covers immunizations, please contact their health care provider.
Please call (608) 266-4821.
To protect young children in group settings where diseases are easily spread, Wisconsin law requires some immunizations for daycare at ages that children are most vulnerable. If your child has received all recommended vaccines for their age, they will meet daycare requirements also.
The WI Student Immunization Law says that all students through grade 12 are required to have certain immunizations based on their grade and age.
