Flu Shots at No Cost

Now more than ever, everyone needs to do their part to prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses such as the flu and COVID-19. Getting the seasonal flu vaccination before the end of October is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu. To ensure that every resident can access vaccines regardless of ability to pay and immigration status, CDPH is hosting more than 50 community flu clinics where residents can get their flu shot for no out-of-pocket cost. Walk-ins are welcome, but to prevent waiting, we strongly encourage everyone to make an appointment. CDPH has also relaunched the Chicago Flu Vaccine Finder, a web-based app that shows the closest location where the flu shot is available. For more information about the flu and to see the full list of community flu clinics in Chicago, visit chicago.gov/flu.
