Northbrook/Glenview Vaccination Clinic for Children Ages 5-11

Northbrook News

The Village of Northbrook is partnering with the Village of Glenview and Jewel-Osco to offer COVID-19 vaccine clinics to children ages 5-11 at the former Grainger site (1657 Shermer Road). Jewel-Osco has confirmed allocation of over 1,000 doses at each of two clinics: 

  • Thursday, November 11 (1st dose) / December 2 (2nd dose) 
  • Wednesday, November 17 (1st dose) / December 8 (2nd dose)

Clinics will be held from 2pm-7:45pm. Appointments are required. Register for an appointment at https://kordinator.mhealthcoach.net/vcl/1616776729370

Please note that these clinics will only have pediatric doses; there will not be an opportunity to vaccinate children 12+, or adults. If your child is turning 12 soon, please talk to a trusted health advisor about which vaccine is best for your child. Also talk to a trusted health advisor if your child recently tested positive for COVID. 

Here’s what to bring to your child’s vaccination appointments: 

  • Parent or guardian identification.
  • Proof of insurance (if you have insurance) -- but insurance is not required.
  • Completed and signed consent form. Please complete and sign the form before arrival. A parent or legal guardian must sign this form. It’s important that the parent/guardian name is also clearly printed on the form, and that the child’s birth date is correct. It is strongly advised that a parent accompanies their child; if another caregiver brings your child, they cannot complete the consent form. 

For space and safety purposes, we ask that only one parent or guardian accompanies each child.

Vaccination is by appointment only; walk-ins will not be allowed. If you make an appointment for your child and later have a conflict, please go into the system to cancel your appointment to make it available to another child in our community.  

You don’t need to register for your child’s second dose appointment; it is automatically scheduled at the same time, exactly three weeks after the first:

  • If your child receives their first dose on November 11, their second appointment is December 2
  • If your child receives their first dose on November 17, their second appointment is December 8

You will receive a reminder card for your child’s second dose at your first appointment. Please bring that card, your child’s vaccination card, and a completed and signed consent form (yes, you must complete and sign two consent forms, one for each appointment). 

As with older children and adults, you will have to remain in an observation area for at least 15 minutes after the vaccine is administered. The room will be set up with activities for children and information for parents about the vaccine in general, and how to prepare for the second dose. 

Other Vaccine Opportunities

If space is full, parents or legal guardians can access other vaccination opportunities for their children at Walgreens or CVS:
