North Shore Health Department Clinics

The North Shore Health Department is not 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. Children with health insurance should 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 also known as Tdap. We encourage parents and guardians to plan ahead to ensure their children are fully vaccinated prior to entering school. If you have questions regarding immunizations, please call us at (414) 371-2980 and request to speak with a public health nurse.

Blood Pressure Screening

The North Shore Health Department does not currently offer blood pressure screenings. Please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) webpage for information on how to Measure Your Blood Pressure. In line with CDC recommendations, we suggest getting your blood pressure measured:​​

  • ​By a health care team member at a doctor's office.
  • At a pharmacy that has a digital blood pressure measurement machine.
  • With a home blood pressure monitor that you can use yourself.

If it is difficult for you to find a doctor, travel to a pharmacy, or purchase a home blood pressure cuff, please call (414) 371-2980 and request to speak with a public health nurse who will be happy to assist you in locating the appropriate resources.
