Now all COVID vaccine and flu clinic appointments will need to be scheduled through MyChart, unless you are getting them at a scheduled well visit with the doctor! We are also vaccinating siblings and parents, as supply allows. 

Here is a link to two vaccine prep videos that Chicago Psychotherapy created in collaboration with Lakeview Pediatrics: https://www.chicago-psychotherapy.com/cp-blog/2021/12/2/helping-families-prepare-children-for-their-covid-19-vaccines.  

Which should my child get, a flu shot or FluMist? This article from the American Academy of Pediatrics answers this question: Prepare Your Family for Flu Season.‚Äč And this article from the CDC has a great discussion as well: Who Should and Should Not Get a Flu Vaccine.

At this time, we have  COVID-19 vaccine for 5-11 year olds and those 12 and older, and have COVID vaccine clinic appointments, available now for scheduling through MyChart. We will also be vaccinating all eligible children ages 5 years and older at well visits. 

Everyone 5 years and older can receive a COVID booster 5 months after the initial series of 2 shots,and a second booster 4 months after the first, is recommended for those over 50 and those over 12 who are immunocompromised. More information is available on CDC’s website . Appointments are available through MyChart!

Lurie Children’s is offering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to all individuals ages 5 and older. Appointments can be made through MyChart, by calling the Lurie COVID Call Center at 312-227-7300 or by visiting www.luriechildrens.org/vaccine to schedule an appointment. You may choose to get the vaccine for your child elsewhere, if it is more convenient. Swedish Covenant Hospital sometimes takes walk-ins,  Walgreens  plans to carry the new vaccine. Some CVS locations will also be giving the vaccine. For other locations near you, you can check vaccines.gov or text your zip code to getvax
