Northwest Community Healthcare is now offering flu vaccines for $25 at its Immediate Care Centers in Buffalo Grove, Lake Zurich, Mount Prospect and Schaumburg. NCH's Occupational Health Services also is scheduling flu vaccines with area employers to help reduce absenteeism among workers. This year's flu vaccine fights against both seasonal influenza and H1N1.
Walk-ins are welcome at the Immediate Care Centers, but to limit your wait time, call ahead to schedule an appointment. Cash and checks are accepted. The vaccines will be administered through an injection. Children must be at least 3 years old to receive a vaccine.
