The Evanston Health and Human Services Department will hold its third H1N1 public vaccination clinic on Saturday, Dec.19, by appointment only at Evanston Township High School.

The clinic will be in the Bacon Cafeteria, which is entered from the rear of the school at 1600 Dodge Ave.

This Clinic will only be available for residents who fit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) priority groups, which include:

  • Pregnant women;
  • People who live with or care for children younger than 6 months of age;
  • Health care and emergency medical services personnel (EMTs/paramedics);
  • All people ages six (6) months through 24 years of age; and
  • Persons aged 25 through 64 years who have health conditions associated with higher risk of medical complications from influenza.

Health Director Evonda Thomas reminds parents with children less than ten years of age who received a first H1N1 vaccine need to get their second dosage. “Parents must bring proof of the first H1N1vaccination with them to the clinic,” Thomas added.

To make an appointment for the clinic, call the city’s emergency response coordinator, A-Reum Han, at 847/859-7829 or e-mail her at [email protected]
