County health department offers vaccinations

4:46 PM, Dec. 27, 2012  |  Comments

Making sure that children of all ages receive all their vaccinations on time is one of the most important things that can be done to ensure children's long-term health as well as the health of friends, classmates, and others in the community. Immunization is the best way to protect your children from 16 potentially harmful, sometimes deadly, diseases. Children in Wisconsin are required to be vaccinated against diseases like measles and whooping cough before they can enter school.

We encourage parents to make sure that their children are up-to-date on their immunizations and to bring them in as soon as possible if they need vaccines. To check the immunization status of your child, you can contact the Kewaunee County Public Health Department or your health-care provider, or look up your child's immunization record in the Wisconsin Immunization Registry.

Effective Oct. 1, 2012, the Kewaunee County Public Health Department is no longer allowed to vaccinate individuals with private health insurance provides vaccine coverage, regardless of co-pay or deductable. Free vaccines will be offered to the following:

Children up to age 18 with

? BadgerCare or Medicaid, or

? no health insurance, or

? health insurance that does not cover vaccines, or

? American Indian or Native Alaskan descent.

Also, adults with:

? no health insurance, or

? health insurance that does not cover vaccines, or

? American Indian or Native Alaskan descent.

Individuals with insurance coverage need to get vaccinated through their health care provider. The department said it is sorry for this inconvenience and would be happy to assist with questions regarding vaccinations. In order to accommodate the changes in vaccine coverage and to better serve all residents, the department has expanded clinic dates/times and now require an appointment.

To schedule an appointment, call Kewaunee County Public Health at (920) 388-7160.
