Those under age 18 who are being vaccinated: Parents/guardians must sign the consent forms AND be physically in attendance at the time of the vaccine.
At this time, children under age 12 are eligible for the Pfizer vaccine (ages 6 months+) or Moderna vaccine (ages 6 months-5 years, and ages 18+). Children under age 12 receive a smaller, pediatric dose of the vaccine based on age on the day of vaccination, not on size or weight.
*Eligibility for a third dose or booster dose
Those eligible for a third dose of Pfizer (ages 5+) or Moderna (ages 18+) include certain moderately to severely immunocompromised individuals. This third dose is considered part of their initial vaccination series and is given 28 days after their second shot.
The CDC recommends a booster dose for ages 5 and older. You can get a booster if it's been at least 5 months since your second Pfizer or Moderna shot, or at least 2 months since your single-dose Janssen (J&J) shot.
For adults age 18 and older, any of the COVID-19 vaccines authorized in the United States can be used for the booster dose. Children ages 5-17 are authorized to receive a Pfizer booster. Read the CDC's booster shot recommendations.
Certain individuals are eligible for a second booster dose using an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Modern) if it's been at least 4 months after the first booster dose:
- Ages 50+
- Ages 12+ and moderately or severely immunocompromised
Patients who receive the COVID-19 vaccine at Edward-Elmhurst Health are required to opt in to I-CARE, which retains vaccine data permanently. I-CARE was developed by the IDPH and is designed to protect patient confidentiality while providing access to statewide registry information.
