Welcome to the Wisconsin Immunization Neighborhood (WIN)

We are in it to WIN a Wisconsin free from preventable disease.

Our neighbors are community immunity champions. They fight preventable disease through their common, everyday actions to become community immunity super heroes.

 They are your pharmacists, doctors, nurses, and lay advocate neighbors.

90% of Wisconsinites agree vaccines are important to protect infants and children from serious and life-threatening disease* agreeing with our efforts to WIN the fight against preventable disease.  Good neighbors don’t leave their community vulnerable to vaccine preventable disease, which is why 85% of Wisconsinites agree keeping vaccination rates high is important to protect others in the community*.

We know we all live in neighborhoods. Our neighbors depend on us. Sometimes it’s for a cup of sugar. Sometimes it is not painting our house a horrible shade of neon orange. Most of the time we don’t even talk about some of the most important parts of being a good neighbor, keeping our community free from infectious disease.

Wisconsin knows taking steps to protect your community is normal. These steps can be harder in rural areas or for people without insurance. Our advocates are here to help you become a community immunity super hero. We advocate in Madison because we know immunization policies, access, and information can have a direct impact on the choice people make whether or not to vaccinate, which directly impacts the chance of vaccine preventable disease outbreaks. We stand for the silent majority of Wisconsin who represent our collective values of human dignity and freedom from disease.

 We are here to stand for the silent majority of people who are doing the right thing by promoting Wisconsin-values of personal responsibility for community protection.
