Before your child may attend to school in the Mequon-Thiensville School District, families must submit legally mandated immunization records.
The date (month, day, and year) of each immunization must be entered on the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Student Immunization Record. All immunization information must be completed. We do not accept copies of doctor’s printouts. This should be submitted to the school your child will attend in the fall.
Please be aware that the Wisconsin Immunization Law requires a booster dose of Varicella (chickenpox) vaccine or a history of having had chickenpox. Varicella can result in serious complications including bacterial skin infections, Reyes Syndrome (a neurologic disorder), encephalitis, and meningitis, and can be fatal.
Waivers are available for religious, health, and personal conviction reasons. However, in the event of an outbreak of a vaccine preventable disease, students with waivers may be excluded from school until the outbreak subsides.
You are encouraged to have your child immunized well in advance of school opening to avoid the late summer rush at immunization clinics. For immunizations or questions on what your child should have been given, contact your doctor, clinic, HMO, or nearest public health department.
You may view your child’s immunization record from your computer on the Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR). The WIR is a secure computerized data system that tracks immunizations given to people. To obtain the dates of your child’s immunizations, type in your child’s name, social security or Medicaid number. In order to access your child’s record their social security number must be in the system. If it is not, contact your medical provider and ask that the number be put into the WIR so that you can access your child’s immunization record.
