Vaccine Eligibility

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.
