Nurses from Loyola Medicine will be at the Maywood Public Library, 121 S. 21st Ave. on Oct. 16, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., to provide free flu shots. The shots are limited and will be provided on a first come, first-served basis.
The free flu shots are funded by Loyola’s Community Benefit Initiative, which helps provide services, programs and activities to support the health of our local communities. The Loyola nurses providing the shots are volunteering their services, according to a statement released by Loyola.
“Promoting wellness in our community is vital to the mission of Loyola University Health System,” said Susan Finn, RN, MSN, program director, pediatric mobile health unit.
“Recognizing that the need for access to healthcare is greater than ever, Loyola seeks to bridge these gaps in health and wellness,” she said.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, children who are at least 6 months old should get flu shots by the end of October. VFP
