Welcome to the Kankakee County Health Department
Protect Yourself and Others - Get a Flu Shot
The single best way to protect yourself against the flu is to get vaccinated.
Walk-in flu vaccination clinics will be held at the Kankakee County Health Department on Thursdays from from 9:00 - 4:00.
You can also call 815-802-9300 to make an appointment.
The cost is $25.00 for a flu shot. Both Medicaid and Medicare (part B), are accepted. We are unable to bill insurance companies (TPL, Illini, Aetna, Medicare Advantage, etc.)
Vaccine is available for children starting at 6 months of age.

The Kankakee County Health Department believes that it is the right of all citizens to have access to a broad continuum of community-based services that protect, maintain and promote the bio-psycho-social health and well-being of the community, and provide a safe and healthy environment.
The department continually assesses the health needs and resources available, promotes development of appropriate needed programs and assures that quality services are acceptable, available, accessible and accountable. These services are delivered in a manner that respects individual and community dignity, values and rights as well as established federal, state and local standards.
