A yearly flu vaccine is the most important step to protect yourself and others from the flu. Flu vaccine protects against the most common circulating viruses and can reduce the severity of flu illness. CDC recommends that everyone 6 months and older get a flu vaccine by the end of October, before flu activity begins in the community. It takes two weeks for the vaccine to protect you from the flu.

Adult flu vaccine is now available by appointment only. Cost is $25 or free with Medicare Part B. Children’s flu shots will be offered at the Children’s Clinic beginning Monday, October 1, 2018 by appointment only. VFC flu vaccines are for those who are uninsured, underinsured, or free for Medicaid Title 19. The cost is $10 for Hoffman Estates, Schaumburg, and Arlington Hts, $12 for all other communities.
