You can also make an appointment by calling the CCH COVID Hotline at 833-308-1988 between the hours of 7:00am and 6:00pm Monday through Friday.
Provident Hospital’s Sengstacke Health Center has vaccine for adults and children. Appointments for that location must be made by calling the hotline at 833-308-1988.
The time is now to make sure your whole family is up to date on their COVID-19 vaccines!
The FDA and CDC recently approved the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines for children 6 months through 4 years. Vaccines for young children are available at all CCH health centers.
Booster shots are now also recommended for all people age 5 and older.
Getting vaccinated helps to protect your child against serious illness, and to prevent your child from spreading COVID-19 to more vulnerable family or friends.
Data show that the vaccines are safe and effective for young children. In fact, they often have fewer side effects from the vaccine than adults.
Families are encouraged to talk to their pediatrician about vaccination and to get vaccinated at their doctor’s office.
Children under age 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to get vaccinated.
Beginning on July 16, People who are not currently CCH patients will be able to visit one of five community COVID-19 vaccine and testing sites: Stroger Hospital, Provident Hospital, Arlington Heights Health Center, North Riverside Health Center or Blue Island Health Center. Current CCH patients will still be able to get COVID-19 tests, vaccines and booster shots at their doctor’s office.
