Currently Being Vaccinated:  65 Years and Older

We appreciate your patience as we add COVID-19 vaccine appointments based on the doses we receive from Chicago Department of Public Health on a weekly basis. Swedish Hospital is vaccinating individuals 65 and older and healthcare workers. The process of vaccinating eligible patients in Phase 1a (healthcare workers) and 1b (65+ and essential workers) will take months to complete.

The best way to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at Swedish Hospital is through NorthShoreConnect. To ensure that you are prepared: 

For Those Eligible in Phase 1b

We encourage our community members 65 years and older and frontline essential workers to receive vaccine access information by contacting their local public health agencies and other available sources.

If you cannot sign up for NorthShoreConnect, you may join our wait list. Signing up for the wait list is not a guarantee of a vaccine appointment and it may take several weeks (or months) to contact you. 

Virtual Town Hall Meeting

On Tuesday, February 23, Swedish Hospital held a virtual town hall meeting. Dr. Bruce McNulty, Chief Medical Officer shared information about how the COVID-19 vaccine works, the latest safety data and how to prepare for the vaccine.
