Swine Flu Shots At Truman College To "Most Vulnerable" Residents

From Chicago Breaking News:

Beginning Saturday morning, free H1N1 swine flu shots for city residents will be made available on a regular basis at six city college locations for the remainder of flu season. The early shipments of the vaccine are being made available only to persons most vulnerable to the H1N1 virus. Those include: pregnant women; all children and young adults ages 6 months to 24 years; people who live with and/or care for infants younger than 6 months of age; people age 25-64 with chronic health conditions (like asthma or diabetes), and health care workers.

For those who don't have a personal physician and lack the means to pay for the vaccination, free shots will administered at six locations: ... Truman College, 1145 W. Wilson Ave.

Beginning Saturday, they will be offered every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and every Tuesday and Thursday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. at those locations.


  1. I'm 6 months pregnant and a teacher. Can I get the vaccine at this location? Do I really have to wait because I have health insurance?

  2. Judging from the people I saw interviewed on TV on Saturday, you're pretty high priority. I think they're discouraging people who aren't high-priority from showing up just because it's free.
