Third Doses for Immunocompromised Individuals and all Skokie Residents Ages 12 and Over
Skokie Health and Human Services began to offer third dose COVID-19 shots for immunocompromised residents on Wednesday, August 25, 2021. The third dose must be from the same manufacturer as doses one and two, and must be administered no earlier than 28 days after dose two.
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.

If you are not immunocompromised, you are not eligible for a third dose at this time. The Centers for Disease Prevention and Control, Food and Drug Administration, National Institutes of Health and other public health and medical experts offered a joint statement regarding booster doses, and stated that around the week of September 20 this would be available. According to the joint statement, “We are prepared to offer booster shots for all Americans beginning the week of September 20 and starting 8 months after an individual’s second dose.”
More detailed information on booster doses for Skokie residents, including Skokie HHS clinic dates and times, appointment process and other options for residents to receive booster doses will be shared in upcoming editions of SkokieNews and on this webpage.
