MONROE - The Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Green County Health Department have announced that Monroe Clinic and Mercy Brodhead Medical Center have been named a "BigShot" for their efforts to vaccinate children against diseases. The recognition is given to health care providers who vaccinate 90 percent or more of their young patients based on immunization data collected by DHS. Childhood vaccinations are critical to protect children and everyone around them from diseases like measles, mumps, rubella, pertussis and cancer, among others.
