Walk-In Immunization Clinics

Infant being immunized

Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) Walk-In 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. CDPH immunization clinics are also open for Flu and COVID-19 vaccines to all Chicago residents eligible for the vaccine, including youth and adults, regardless of insurance status.

*Flu vaccines are available for all Chicago residents 6 months and older*

Starting June 1, 2018 Chicago Department of Public Health Walk-In Immunization clinics will no longer provide services to individuals who live outside the city of Chicago.  You may be asked to show proof of residence.  If you need help identifying another vaccination provider, please visit http://vfc.illinois.gov/search/
