If you are immunocompromised, meet one of the below criteria, and are able to provide documentation, please click on this link for PFIZER Wednesday COVID-19 Clinics - Village of Skokie Health and Human Services - VH - PFIZER (juvare.com)  OR  this link for MODERNA Thursday COVID-19 Clinics - Village of Skokie Health and Human Services - VH - MODERNA (juvare.com) to schedule your 3rd dose COVID-19 vaccine shot.
