Dr. Mehmet Oz is coming to Park Ridge.
The celebrity physician and host of “The Dr. Oz Show” will be the special guest at an upcoming vaccination clinic on the campus of Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge.
One thousand free flu vaccinations will be given between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 29 at the Advocate Medical Group’s Nesset Pavilion, 1775 Ballard Rd.
Dr. Oz will be on hand to meet and greet people signed up to receive a flu vaccination during the event, which is sponsored by Advocate Medical Group and Fox 32 Chicago.
“We thought it would be a great partnership for all three of us to do something for the community,” said Stephanie Johnson, director of public affairs for Advocate Health Care.
