Getting vaccinated against the flu in November or even December is not too late. Public health officials recommend that everyone older than 6 months get vaccinated every year.
Flu vaccine is offered at numerous commercial pharmacies, grocery stores and other retail sites in the Oak Park area. Most of these sites accept private insurances and Medicare Part B to help cover the cost of the flu shot. Many sites will vaccinate children as young as 18 months.
Help finding a flu shot provider is available at vaccinefinder.org. Residents also can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 708.358.5483 with questions about access to an affordable flu shot.
