Vaccines/Shots/Immunizations

 

Due to shipping delays from our distributor, CDPH flu clinics do not have high dose flu vaccines at this time.  High dose flu vaccines are typically reserved for individuals over the age of 65 years.  Regular "standard dose" flu shots are still available and recommended for everyone, no matter what age. Please check back for when high dose flu vaccine becomes available again. 

 

When 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 some uninsured adults and college students.

Shots are offered to Chicago residents at various Walk-In immunization clinics or through the Mobile Care Van that visits different communities and events throughout the City.  Currently, we serve uninsured, underinsured, Medicaid (Title XIX) insured and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP; also known as Title XXI or state-funded) individuals only.

If your college/university/health professional school has vaccination requirements, please see the following guide to your local resources:
