EAU CLAIRE, Wis. — Mayo Clinic Health System is offering Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) sports physicals and immunization clinics to student athletes in northwest Wisconsin who are entering grades seven through 12.

Exams are required by WIAA for participation in extracurricular school sports. During the clinics, student athletes receive comprehensive WIAA sports physicals by a medical provider. Physicals cost $35 during these clinics only; cash payment is required on the day of service.

All students, whether coming for a sports physical or not, are invited to update their chickenpox, HPV, meningococcal and Tdap immunizations at the same time for an additional fee.

Participants who receive immunizations have the option to bill their insurance.
