Welcome from the Skokie Health Department

Public health touches the lives of everyone, and Skokie is fortunate to have one of the few state-certified municipal health departments in Illinois.  Skokie Health Department employees work every day to improve the quality of life in Skokie by ensuring safe food and water, maintaining vital birth and death records, controlling outbreaks of infectious diseases and much more. Since early 2020, much of the Skokie Health Department's focus has been on the COVID-19 pandemic, and how to best protect the community. Although the Skokie Health Department personal health services are temporarily unavailable, the Department has historically offered a number of prevention services, such as immunizations and health screenings, and promote healthy behaviors through our tobacco cessation seminars and other programs. Flu clinics will be offered in fall 2020. Details will be announced in late August 2020.

Please call the Health Department at 847/933-8252 if you have additional questions.
