Children under age 18
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. Read the CDC's booster shot recommendations.
Updated COVID-19 boosters, also known as “bivalent” boosters, protect against the most recent omicron subvariants as well as the original strain.
The CDC recommends that ages 12 and older receive the updated (bivalent) mRNA booster dose (Pfizer or Moderna for ages 18+, and Pfizer for ages 12-17).
Children ages 5-11 years may receive the original (monovalent) mRNA booster dose, if eligible.
The Novavax COVID-19 vaccine is not yet authorized as a booster.
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.
