General Information


 
 
         
Adults
Flu vaccines for Adults are only covered for Medicare recipients. If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan or a Medicare supplement, you must pay for your Flu vaccination upfront and send in your reciept for reimbursement to your Medicare Advantage Plan/Supplement provider. Unfortunately, we do not bill private insurance companies at this time.

Tdap for adults are also being offered for free regardless of insurance status. Tdap is a vaccine that provides protection against the bacterial diseases of tetanus (Lockjaw), diphtheria, and pertussis (Whooping Cough) which are very serious diseases. Tdap vaccine is also recommended for pregnant women in order to protect newborn babies against pertussis.

VACCINES AVAILABLE FOR ADULTS (ages 19 and up)
Tetanus – Diptheria - Pertussis (Tdap) No Charge at this time
Hepatitis B 3 dose series $50 per dose.

Children
All immunizations for children 18 and under are free if the child is a Medicaid participant, does not have insurance or if the family’s private insurance doesn’t cover vaccines. Information and consent forms must be signed by a parent or legal guardian. If children are coming to the clinic with another person, please ask to have the forms sent to you prior to the clinic visit.


GENERAL INFORMATION
Many serious diseases can be prevented by immunizations. The Florence County Health Department provides a wide range of childhood and adult immunizations at scheduled community immunization clinics as well as by appointment at the health department.

CHILDREN
The Wisconsin immunization law requires children in licensed day care centers and students through grade 12 to be immunized against certain diseases according to their age or grade level. Students must provide dates of immunizations upon admission to school, or be subject to exclusion or legal action. Immunizations are available for both children and adults.

Immunizing your children is one of the most important things you can do to keep them healthy. Since childhood diseases are especially dangerous for infants, it is important to start your child’s immunizations on time, usually at birth or 2 months of age.

WISCONSIN IMMUNIZATION REGISTRY
The Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR) is an electronic database developed to keep track of immunization records and help Wisconsin residents follow the recommended schedule. It helps providers remind patients when immunizations are due. The Health Department uses the WIR to record immunizations given, to assist clients and medical providers in determining immunization status, and to track immunization rates for the community. The WIR also allows parents to access their child’s immunization record online.
