Get the Flu Shot

It is more important than ever that you and your family get a flu shot this year! Erie is offering the flu vaccine for all patients over 6 months old.

Walk-in flu vaccinations are for current Erie patients only.


The shot helps protect you from getting really sick with the flu, and keeps people out of the hospital.

If you are older than six months of age and are an Erie patient, you can get your flu vaccine at an Erie health center. Call 312-666-3494 to schedule a lab appointment for a flu vaccine at Erie.

COVID-19 Vaccination is also available for patients age 6 months and up!

It is possible, and safe, to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, including the updated booster, and flu vaccine at the same time.

Flu vaccines cannot give you the flu. Flu vaccines are made with either inactivated (killed) virus or with a single protein from the flu virus.

You need the flu shot every year.
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone 6 months of age and older. Flu viruses change constantly, so the vaccine is reviewed each year and updated as needed, based on which flu viruses are making people sick.
