DHS Memo on Vaccines Recommended During Pregnancy

The WAFP has signed on to a recent memo from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, stressing the importance of vaccines during pregnancy for both mother and infant.

The Wisconsin Immunization Program, in partnership and collaboration with local partners, strives to eliminate the transmission of vaccine preventable disease through effective immunization programs and outbreak control measures. Utilizing best practice strategies and evidence-based programming, the steps to achieve this mission include:

  • Improving the effectiveness of immunization delivery systems.
  • Increasing immunization access for all.
  • Identifying and eliminating racial, ethnic and other disparities.
  • Protecting the community through high immunization rates.
