The City of Chicago reports that it has depleted its current supply of COVID-19 vaccines for kids aged 5-11 (who require a smaller dose). As of October 3, we are unable to provide vaccinations for this age group pending receipt of additional vaccine supply. Please stay tuned for further updates on this issue. We apologize for this inconvenience.


The CDC has approved and is recommending updated COVID-19 bivalent boosters. Swedish is administering the Pfizer bivalent booster and welcomes all eligible patients.Please bring your ID and insurance card with you at the time of your vaccination.

About COVID-19 vaccines & boosters

CDC recommends everyone stay up to date with their COVID-19 vaccination, including all primary series doses and boosters for their age group:

  • Effectively immediately, people ages 12 years and older can only receive the updated Omicron (bivalent) booster now that it’s available. The original (monovalent) mRNA booster is no longer available for these individuals.
  • Children ages 5 to 11 years should receive all primary series doses and updated COVID-19 boosters, if eligible.
  • Children ages 6 months to 4 years should get all COVID-19 primary series doses.
  • Receiving a COVID-19 vaccine after you recover from COVID-19 infection provides added protection against COVID-19.
  • People who are moderately or severely immuno-compromised have different recommendations for COVID-19 vaccines, including boosters.

COVID-19 vaccine and booster recommendations may be updated as CDC continues to monitor the latest data. Please visit this webpage and the CDC website for additional updates.

Important Details to Know Before Scheduling Your Vaccination Appointment

  • A parent or legal guardian must sign the consent for care and vaccine consent and attend the vaccine appointment.
  • Your second dose will be automatically scheduled for the same time, day and location 21 days following your first dose. Due to high vaccine demand, we cannot reschedule your second dose appointment, please ensure you can make both appointments.
  • You are not fully vaccinated until you complete your second dose.  Please commit to come to your second dose appointment specially reserved for you.  
  • If you received your first dose elsewhere, you may receive your second dose at Swedish Hospital. This may not be true of all NorthShore locations. Please contact the vaccine location you intend to visit to confirm.
