The Evanston Health and Human Services Department will hold its fourth H1N1 Public Vaccination Clinic on Saturday, Jan. 9, by appointment only.

The clinic will be held in the Maple Room at the Levy Center, 300 Dodge Ave., and will be available for all residents who want to receive the vaccine.

“The City’s Health and Human Services Department also reminds parents whose children are less than ten years of age who received their first H1N1 vaccine need to get their second dosage of the H1N1 vaccine,” health director Evonda Thomas said.

To make an appointment contact the City’s Emergency Response Coordinator A-Reum Han at 847/859-7829 or e-mail her ahan@cityofevanston.org.

Please alert the clinic staff if you have received seasonal flu mist in the last 30 days.

The clinic is only for Evanston residents. Please be prepared to show proof of residency.

Thomas says it’s especially important for pregnant women and pre-school children to get vaccinated against H1N1.

Parents/guardians must have a signed consent form completed for children 18 and under for them to receive the H1N1 vaccination. Children at least six months of age but younger than 10 years of age will need to have two doses of the H1N1 vaccine, separated by 28 days.

Further information on H1N1 and updates on vaccine availability will be posted on the Health and Human Services Department’s website.

  1. H1N1 shots available at Walgreens and elsewhere…
    At Walgreens it cost me $18. Dominick’s probably has them available as well. I didn’t have an appointment, and did not need to show proof or residency, etc. So this vaccine is available to the general population, but it is not free. It’s not clear from the news item above if the vaccine is free from the Public Vaccination Clinic.

    1. Free shots
      Word from the city is that the H1N1 shots are free — to Evanston residents — at the city clinic Saturday.
