From jaunted.com, a brief list of airports that offer the service:

  • At Chicago O’Hare, one of the nation’s busiest airports, the O’Hare Medical Clinic in Terminal 2 offers flu shots, immunizations, diabetes and cholesterol screenings and more. No appointments are necessary.
  • In Atlanta, flu shots are available in Hartsfield-Jackson’s AeroClinic in the main terminal. AeroClinic also has kiosk locations at Charlotte and Philadelphia airports, where flu shots are available. No appointments necessary.
  • At San Francisco’s SFO, flu shots are available at the SFO Medical Clinic located before security on the Departures/Ticketing Level of the International Terminal Main Hall, on the A side. Appointments are required.

More info about airport vaccines from USA Today:

Through the end of the year, flu shots ($30; pertussis/whooping cough and pneumonia shots also available) are being offered at the O’Hare Medical Clinic center and at several kiosks in the terminals.

Flu shots ($35; cash only) are also available at the AeroClinic in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport’s Main Terminal (Atrium Level 3) and for $25 at both the Carehere! Walk-in Clinic and Wellness Store (Concourse C) at Nashville International Airport and the Airport Health Station (Ticket Lobby “B”) at Memphis International Airport.

“People are saying it’s a mild flu season,” said O’Hare’s John Zautcke, “But the flu season hasn’t really hit, so get the vaccine while the supply is plentiful.”

Here’s a link to an article that includes this year’s round-up of airports offering flu shots. http://www.usatoday.com/story/travel/flights/2012/11/14/germiest-surfaces-planes-airports/1702683/
