Kane County Health Department Offers Free MMR Vaccines Aug. 2 in St. Charles

The Kane County Health Department announces a free vaccination clinic for MMR — Measles, Mumps and Rubella — from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2, at Hosanna! Lutheran Church, 36W925 Red Gate Road in St. Charles during the school’s “School Supply Give Away.” No appointment is necessary.

Who Should Get an MMR Vaccine?

  • All children should get two doses of MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine, starting with the first dose at 12 through 15 months of age, and the second dose at 4 through 6 years of age. Children can receive the second dose earlier as long as it is at least 28 days after the first dose.
  • Students at post-high school educational institutions who do not have evidence of immunity need two doses of MMR vaccine, separated by at least 28 days.
  • Adults who do not have evidence of immunity should get at least one dose of MMR vaccine.

Funding for the immunizations comes from a grant from the Illinois Department of Public Health.
