  • New this year: HHS will offer Fluzone as an option for residents ages 65 and older. Fluzone is one of the three vaccines the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have identified as “preferred for residents ages 65 and older.” If you have an allergy to eggs, please consult your physician prior to requesting the Fluzone vaccine.
  • You will be asked to provide Medicare information. For those without Medicare, you'll be asked to provide insurance information to defray the cost of the program. This program is free to Skokie residents; there will be no charge regardless of insurance status. 
  • Please bring identification showing proof of residence and your Medicare card (if applicable) and medical insurance card.
