What to Bring to Immunization Clinics:
Immunize on Schedule:
Immunizing children is one of the best ways to keep them healthy. Since childhood diseases are especially dangerous for infants, it is important to start immunizations on time, usually at birth or 2 months. Children need 80% of their vaccinations in the first 2 years of life. This usually takes 5 visits to a health care provider.
Keep Immunization Records:
Parents should keep their own copy of an up-to-date immunization record even though the doctors and public health clinics also keep them. Always take an up-to-date record to every doctor and public health clinic visit; records prevent unnecessary immunizations.
The Wisconsin Immunization Law:
Wisconsin Immunization Law requires children in licensed day care centers and students through grade 12 to be immunized against certain diseases. Students must provide dates (month, date, and year) of immunization upon admission to school, or be subject to exclusion or legal action. Waivers are available for medical, religious, or personal conviction.
