CDPH Launches ‘Flu shot Campaign’

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - Health

The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) yearly flu shot clinics are underway across the city. In addition, CDPH announced two Saturday events in November dedicated to helping Chicago residents get vaccinated against the flu. Family Flu Clinics will provide parents and children the opportunity to get their flu shots together, along with fun, family-oriented activities. Events will be held Saturday, Nov. 5th and Saturday, Nov. 12th at five City Colleges around Chicago. In addition, CDPH has collaborated with various partners, including Aldermen from across the city, to host more than 70 community events where residents receive their flu shot for no out-of-pocket cost. To get vaccinated, talk to your doctor or call your local pharmacy. If you do not have a doctor, call 311 to locate a CDPH Fast Track Immunization Clinic. You can also use the Flu Clinic Finder to locate a place nearby. See below for the dates, times and locations of this year’s Family Flu Clinics:
