Immunizations

The North Shore Health Department (NSHD) maintains an immunization program to prevent and control vaccine-preventable diseases. Under the Vaccines For Children (VFC) program, NSHD provides immunizations to residents without medical insurance, to those on Medicaid and to those whose insurance does not cover vaccines.  Adults who meet these criteria may also qualify to receive vaccine through NSHD.

Please contact our office to check vaccine availability, learn more about VFC eligibility and to make a vaccination appointment by calling 414-371-2980 or emailing:  nshd@nshealthdept.org.

Additionally, NSHD works with families, schools and daycare providers to ensure enrolled children are up-to-date on their immunizations and compliant with the Wisconsin Student Immunization Law. 

As part of the effort to prevent influenza, NSHD provides flu immunizations through onsite immunization clinics, as well as our homebound resident program.  To learn more, please contact our office by calling 414-371-2980 or emailing:  nshd@nshealthdept.org.
