H1N1 Vaccine Available to Chatham Residents!
We, at the Chatham Avalon Park Community Council, want to inform our residents that Swine Flu or H1N1 vaccines are available for those in the high-risk groups, i.e., in close contact with young people, at the following sites set up by the City: Kennedy King College, 6301 S. Halsted; Olive Harvey College, 10001 S. Woodlawn; Richard J. Daley College, 7500 S. Pulaski. Hours of operation are 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Saturdays. No appointments are necessary, and all vaccinations will be delivered free of charge, on a first come/first served basis. People who are allergic to eggs should not receive the vaccination. In addition to doctors’ offices and public health vaccination sites, H1N1 vaccine is expected to be available at retail pharmacies in the weeks ahead----giving Chicagoans ample opportunities to get vaccinated. College students in the city are advised to check in with their campus health service to see if and when H1N1 vaccinations will be offered.
