Vaccines/Shots/Immunizations

Picture of ShotWhen you have kids, keeping up with all their immunizations is KEY in preventing serious diseases. Do your part and protect kids by making sure your family is up to date with all their immunizations.

The Chicago Department of Public Health provides Vaccines, Flu Shots and Immunizations for Elementary, High School and College students.

Shots are offered to Chicago residents at various Fast-Track immunization clinics or through the Mobile Care Van that visits different communities and events throughout the City.  Services are provided on a sliding fee scale ($0 - $128) depending on income. We accept Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance.  HMO patients are referred to their primary provider. 

Pertussis, also known as” Whopping cough” is on the rise in Illinois and can cause series illness in infants, children and adults. It is also easily spread, especially in schools. Kids 11 and up need it, and it’s now required for all 6th and 9th graders in Illinois.
