[ARCHIVED] It is Adolescent Immunization Action Week

Immunization Week Logo

Adolescent Immunization Action Week (#AIAW22) is April 3-7. This is a great time to “spring” into action by contacting your primary care provider to schedule an immunization assessment for your adolescent.  

Many adolescents missed their annual checkups and immunizations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Making sure that your adolescent is up to date is one of the best ways we can work together to protect their health. Vaccines are critical to protect your adolescent from serious illnesses. These include protecting against meningitis; cancers caused by HPV; tetanus, diphtheria, and whooping cough. 

Skokie Health and Human Services offers childhood vaccines to qualified residents via appointment by calling 847/933-8251.   Children who qualify for HHS’s immunization program are:

  • Children ages of 18 and under
  • Children without healthcare insurance (uninsured)
  • Children who are covered by health insurance, but the insurance does not cover the cost of vaccines (underinsured)
  • Children who are eligible for Medicaid or enrolled in a Medicaid eligible program
  • Children who are of American Indian or Alaska Native decent
