COVID-19 Vaccine Booster 

    Who is Eligible for a Booster Vaccine?

    The CDC has approved boosters for all adults, clearing the way for everyone 18 and up to get an extra dose and urging those over 50 to do so. If you are an adult who received a Pfizer or Moderna vaccine six or more months ago or a J&J vaccine two or more months ago, you are now eligible to get an extra dose of any approved vaccine brand 

    If You are Eligible, Schedule Your Booster Today*  

    Please bring your original vaccine card, ID and (if available) insurance card to your booster appointment.

    *Note that Swedish Hospital is the only NorthShore facility providing the J&J vaccine and is not currently offering Moderna. 

Important Details to Know Before Scheduling Your Vaccination Appointment

  • A parent or legal guardian must sign the consent for care and vaccine consent and attend the vaccine appointment.
  • Your second dose will be automatically scheduled for the same time, day and location 21 days following your first dose. Due to high vaccine demand, we cannot reschedule your second dose appointment, please ensure you can make both appointments.
  • You are not fully vaccinated until you complete your second dose.  Please commit to come to your second dose appointment specially reserved for you.  
  • If you received your first dose elsewhere, you may receive your second dose at Swedish Hospital. This may not be true of all NorthShore locations. Please contact the vaccine location you intend to visit to confirm.
