WISCONSIN IMMUNIZATION REGISTRY
The Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR) is an electronic database  developed to keep track of children’s immunization records and help them follow the recommended schedule. It helps providers remind parents when immunizations are due. The Health Department uses the WIR to record immunizations given, to assist parents and medical providers in determining immunization status, and to track immunization rates for the community. The WIR also allows parents to access their child’s immunization record online. More info at WIR.
