About VaxPro

VaxPro was founded in 2006 with the goal to bring customized flu shot vaccination clinics to corporate employees. We have grown this on-site concept over the years and we now provide flu shot clinics to businesses throughout the Wisconsin and Illinois. Our motto is "no one waits in line for a VaxPro flu shot." 

VaxPro has expanded our services to include a wide variety of vaccinations. We also provide health and wellness services like Biometric Screening (blood pressure, BMI, cholesterol, glucose and coaching) and tuberculosis testing (for employees working in healthcare-related centers, senior centers and schools).

  VaxPro's co-founders, Jay and Steve, work closely with customers to provide a quality wellness experience.
