FHN is now offering adult COVID-19 Bivalent booster vaccinations which contain both original and Omicron subvariants coverage. Individuals must have completed the initial two doses of Moderna or Pfizer vaccines – or one dose of Johnson & Johnson – at least two months prior to receiving the Bivalent booster. FHN is recommending a two-week waiting period between the annual flu vaccine and the Bivalent COVID-19 booster vaccination.
Initial Moderna vaccinations and Bivalent booster vaccinations will be given at FHN Family Healthcare Center – Burchard Hills, FHN Family Healthcare Center – Lanark, and FHN Family Healthcare Center – Forreston.
Please call FHN Central Scheduling at 815-599-7060 to schedule an appointment for adult initial COVID-19 vaccinations or Bivalent booster vaccinations.
PFIZER pediatric COVID-19 vaccinations are given at FHN Family Healthcare Center – Burchard Hills Pediatric Office. Please call the office at 815-599-7755 to schedule an appointment.
FHN is following CDC guidelines regarding eligibility.
For all of the clinic events, patients receiving a first or second booster should bring a photo ID and their COVID-19 immunization card, and all patients and persons accompanying them must wear a mask while in the facility. All patients should plan to stay for 15 minutes after receiving the vaccination (30 minutes for persons who have had immediate reactions to vaccinations such as flu shots, or regularly need to carry an EpiPen).
