[AustinTalks] The Chicago Department of Public Health’s yearly flu shot clinics are underway across the city, including several West Side locations.

The city’s family flu clinics provide parents and children the opportunity to get their flu shots together, along with fun, family-oriented activities. The next event will be held Saturday, Nov. 12th at the five City Colleges of Chicago.

To get vaccinated, talk to your doctor or call your local pharmacy. If you do not have a doctor, call 311 to locate a city public health department’s Fast Track Immunization Clinic. You can also use the Flu Clinic Finder at chicagoflushots.org/ to locate a place nearby.
