CDPH Immunization Clinics
Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) immunization clinics provide vaccinations for children 0 through 18 years of age at no out-of-pocket cost. 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. Please bring your insurance card (if you are insured) to your vaccine appointment. No one will be turned away.
Individuals can receive a digital or paper copy of their full vaccination records, including COVID-19, by visiting IDPH Vax Verify. CDPH recommends bringing any vaccination cards/records to vaccine appointment if available. No one will be turned away.
✶ Flu vaccines are available for all Chicago residents 6 months and older ✶

The Chicago CareVan
The Chicago CareVan is a mobile immunization clinic that offers services at no out of pocket cost at Head Start, child care centers, schools, public housing sites, WIC centers, and community events. The clinic provides all immunizations that are recommended by the CDC, with the exception of varicella (chickenpox) vaccine.
At your appointment, please bring your child's shot record with you. For the safety of your child it is important for the immunization nurse to know what shots your child has already received and when they were given. To see when the CareVan will be at a location near you, check the CareVan schedule linked below or call 312.746.6181.
If you represent an organization that would like to host a CareVan event, please fill out this event request form. A CDPH representative will get back to you to confirm.
