Now is the time to get a vaccination for flu. With COVID-19 still present here, getting a flu vaccine is more important than ever because it will help reduce the burden of flu illnesses, decrease hospitalizations, and help conserve scarce medical resources.

Upcoming flu vaccination event: The City has partnered with BlueCross BlueShield and Jewel-Osco to fight the flu by hosting a flu vaccination event in the Evanston Township High School parking lot, located east of Dodge Avenue and north of Lake Street, on Sunday, Nov. 29 from 10 a.m. to noon. Registration is available here.
