As of Monday, April 12, everyone over the age of 16 is eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in Illinois. We encourage all established patients who are eligible to get a vaccine as soon as they are able to schedule one. In the weeks ahead, we anticipate increased vaccine supply and availability for all community members who have not yet been vaccinated.
COVID-19 vaccines work and have been proven safe through testing, Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) and several months of use in the United States. All presently available vaccines offer substantial reduction in the risk of severe COVID illness, hospitalization and death. These vaccines are a critical component to putting the pandemic behind us.
All eligible patients can schedule an appointment for a vaccine through their MyDMGHealth account or by calling 1 – 888-MyDMG-DR. Appointments for first doses are made available as we receive vaccine supply.
DuPage Medical Group receives its vaccine supply through the local health departments and first dose supply is matched to second dose supply. We are unable to provide a second dose for patients who have received the first dose from another healthcare provider, pharmacy or organization. We strongly encourage our patients to get their vaccine where available to them and ensure that you make a second appointment when you receive your first vaccine.
At our vaccine clinics, patients will schedule their second dose appointment for the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine while they are being observed for 15 minutes following their first dose.
