Chicago Care Van

Coming to CHA on May 24th…

The Mobile Immunization CareVan 

Starting at 9am and ending at 2pm, a Chicago CareVan will be providing free immunizations to all children who come from birth through 18 years of age. There are approximately 10 students who need to update their current sports physicals. However after them, we have approximately 20 open spots for students to take advantage of this opportunity. The first students to complete and return the forms to us will be eligible for the sports physicals at no cost to you.

The clinic provides all immunizations that are recommended by the CDC, with the exception of varicella (chickenpox) vaccine.

The Chicago Care Van is a public/private partnership between CDPH and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois.  Free immunizations are provided in Head Start, child care centers, schools, public housing sites, WIC centers and at community events.

Please bring your child’s shot record with you. For the safety of your child it is important for the immunization nurse to know what shots your child has already received and when they were given.
