Public Health

Disease Prevention & Immunizations

Pierce County tracks communicable diseases through an electronic reporting system linking the local, regional and state public health officials with private health care providers, hospitals, and labs. This allows for prompt investigation of possible outbreaks and unusual situations, and to implement control measures to minimize further spread of disease to others.

Immunization is one of the most important public health victories of the 20th century – defeating or sharply reducing diseases such as smallpox, polio, measles, diphtheria, rubella, pertussis, and other diseases. However, many organisms that cause these diseases have not been eliminated, and they could reemerge if immunization levels decrease.

 

Communicable Diseases

Pierce County provides a variety of surveillance and investigation of reported or suspected communicable diseases. If you or someone you know has one of the following reportable diseases, please contact your Medical Care Provider or Pierce County Public Health 715-273-6755.

Immunization

Due to funding changes in 2012 the Health Department can only offer immunizations to children who are Medicaid eligible, uninsured, underinsured (insurance does not cover vaccines), American Indians or Alaska Natives. If you have questions please feel free to call the Health Department.

Donations are accepted at all clinic sites. Your contributions help assure the continuation of the valuable service in Pierce County.

Make sure you and your children are fully protected. If you have any questions or desire an appointment call the Pierce County Health Department at 715-273-6755.
If you are traveling out of the country, please go to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention web site for disease and vaccination information.
