North Shore Health Department Clinics Who is able to receive vaccines? We are no longer able to provide vaccines to children whose insurance covers immunizations(Does not apply to flu vaccines) The Wisconsin Immunization Program initiated this policy change on October 1, 2012. These children will need to visit their primary health care provider for their immunizations, even if the insurance includes a high deductible or co-pay, or the deductible has not been met. The only exception to this policy change is the pertussis-containing vaccine (Tdap). Parents need to plan ahead to ensure their children are fully vaccinated during this back to school time. If you have questions regarding immunizations, please call us at 414-371-2980. To schedule an eppointment click here. *Certain vaccines may not be available at both health department locations. Clinic Dates and Times North Shore residents can make appointments for any of our clinics. Please call 371-2980 for more information or to make an appointment. January and February Clinic Dates/Times Flu Vaccine Clinics Flu shots are available during the regular scheduled clinics. You can call to schedule an appointment or request an eappointment through the website. Please see below for a list of open flu clinics(no appointment needed) It is not too late to get your flu shot! Health Departments throughout the region are seeing an increase in numbers of people hospitalized with influenza, with some requiring admission to intensive care units and even needing to be on a ventilator. Flu is NOT just a “bad cold”- it is potentially deadly. The North Shore Health Department has reviewed the flu hospitalization records and compared them to the state database for flu shots. None of the people hospitalized for influenza who received a flu vaccination booster required admission to an intensive care unit or mechanical ventilation, indicating that the flu vaccine may have lessened the severity of their illness. The flu shot cannot “give you the flu.” It does take about two weeks for your body to build immunity after receiving a flu shot, so the sooner you get your shot, the sooner you’re protected. Call the North Shore Health Department at 414-371-2980 today to schedule your flu shot if you have not had one yet. Homebound Flu Shots Can't get out for your flu shot?
