The vaccine is available by appointment only.

Appointment availability is dependent upon the vaccine supply received.

The COVID-19 vaccine is provided at no cost to insured or uninsured patients. For insured patients, Greater Family Health will bill your insurance carrier.

Patients will schedule a second appointment to receive the second dose of the vaccine when they come in for their first dose.

The Pfizer, Moderna and Janssen booster shot are available. Following IDPH guidelines, adolescents aged 16-17 are eligible for the Pfizer booster shots.
