Kids as young as ten can now get flu shots and other vaccinations from a pharmacist, so long as they have a doctor's prescription. Governor Quinn says the new law comes just in time for school.
Illinois Department of Public Health Director Lamar Hasbrouck says getting your kids vaccinated is important, especially as flu season approaches.
The law previously didn't allow children under 14 to receive the injection. It takes effect immediately. Getting your kid vaccinated could be as easy as taking a trip to your local Walgreens, Target, or other pharmacy.
