About VaxPro

VaxPro was founded in 2006 with the goal to bring cost-effective and efficient flu shot vaccinations to the workforce. VaxPro has grown this on-site concept over the years and now provides flu shot clinics throughout the Midwest. Our motto is "no one waits in line for a VaxPro flu shot." Our staff arrives at your facility fully-equipped to vaccinate your employees.

Over the years, we have expanded our services to include a wide variety of vaccinations. We also provide wellness services like Biometric Screening (blood pressure, BMI, cholesterol, glucose and coaching) and TB testing (healthcare-related employees).

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