Immunizations are important for people of all ages, as they help protect you and others around you from serious, potentially life-threatening illnesses. The Public Health Department Clinic offers routine childhood vaccines as well as several different vaccines recommended for adults.
The Clinic also offers Tuberculosis (TB) Skin Tests. These tests are used to determine if you may be infected with a bacteria which causes tuberculosis, a serious infection that usually affects the lungs.
Both adult and childhood immunizations are available through the Public Health Department Clinic by appointment only. In order to receive vaccines, children must be uninsured, underinsured, or currently covered by Medicaid/Badgercare.
To make an appointment, call 262-636-9431. Online scheduling is not available at this time.
TB (Tuberculosis) Skin Tests are available through the Public Health Department Clinic by appointment only.
Tuberculosis is a common disease caused by infectious bacteria primarily affecting the lungs. TB is spread from person to person by coughing, sneezing, or close personal contact with an infected individual. Exposure to TB can be detected by a simple skin test. Not everyone needs to be tested for tuberculosis. Check to see if you have
risk factors. In Wisconsin, the two most common risk factors for TB disease are being born in or having lived in a country where TB disease is more common, or having contact with someone who has active TB disease.
There are two types of TB infection: Latent and Active.
Latent TB means you have been infected with TB bacteria, but your immune system is fighting the bacteria to keep you from getting sick.
Active TB disease means your immune system can't fight the TB bacteria you have been infected with. Individuals with Active TB must receive treatment to protect their health and prevent them from infecting others.

Influenza, or the flu, is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses. It can cause mild to severe illness with symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, muscle aches, and vomiting, and at times can lead to death. Some people, such as older people, young children, and those with certain health conditions, are at high risk for serious complications resulting from the flu. The best way to prevent the flu is by getting vaccinated each year. Vaccination begins each fall and continues through spring. This time period matches the time of the year when influenza becomes most widespread in the U.S.
Pneumonia is an inflammation of the lungs caused by an infection. Bacteria, viruses, fungi or parasites can all cause pneumonia. Pneumonia is of particular concern for those over 65 or with a chronic illness or weakened immune system. However, it can also occur in young, healthy people. Pneumonia can range in seriousness from mild to life-threatening. The best defense against pneumonia is simply to be vaccinated.
If interested in receiving an influenza or pneumonia vaccine, contact your primary care physician or local pharmacy.
