Orland Township is hosting its monthly immunization clinic on Tuesday, April 11 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the township building, 14807 S. Ravinia Avenue. Flu shots will also be available on this day. Also, please note that Orland Township is still serving children with All Kids’ state insurance.
Free vaccines are available to township children 18 and under. Some eligibility restrictions apply. Non-residential children who meet the eligibility guidelines are welcome. For children residing outside of the township’s boundaries, a $20 administration fee per vaccine will be charged (not applicable to those with Medicaid). An up-to-date shot record is mandatory to receive any vaccine, and children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
Children’s vaccines that are available include DTaP, DTaP-Hep B-IPV, DTaP-IPV-Hib, DTaP-IPV, Hep A, Hep B, Hep B-Hib, HPV, Meningococcal, Meningococcal B, MMR, IPV, Pneumococcal, Rotavirus, Tdap and Varicella. Adult vaccines that are available include HPV, Pneumococcal, Tuberculosis, Tdap, Hep A-Hep B, MMR, Varicella and Shingles.
Immunizations can be easily forgotten, but with school requirements, international travel and the rapidity in which illness is spread, it’s important for children and adults alike to receive immunizations. For additional clinic dates and adult immunization prices, visit www.orlandtownship.org.
