Flu


A flu vaccine is the FIRST and BEST step to prevent getting the flu. Flu vaccine will keep you and your loved ones safe from a very serious disease. The recommendation for flu vaccine is EVERY ONE - EVERY YEAR. Flu shots are available for children and adults. 

The Public Health Immunization clinic is open by appointment only.  If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call 262-896-8430, option #5.  

For Infants, Children & Teens:
  • The CDC recommends that children ages 6 months through 18 years of age receive a flu vaccine every year.
  • If your child is insured, please make an appointment with your primary care provider for vaccinations.
