The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed our world over the past year, and many of us are excited at seeing a potential light at the end of this tunnel. There are now several versions of the COVID-19 vaccine available on the market, being distributed according to the eligibility guidelines set by the CDC and IDPH. Currently, DuPage Immediate Care is proud to offer both the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines, subject to availability. There is a large demand for this vaccine at the moment, but our staff and clinic are equipped to distribute this vaccine to eligible patients with an appointment.
If you are wondering where to get the COVID-19 vaccine, there are many options available to you, including your local Oakbrook urgent care facility. Most people don’t have to wait to get into a doctor’s office to receive their shot, as many smaller, local healthcare clinics are approved to administer vaccines such as this one. Thankfully, this allows faster and more accessible vaccination!
The COVID-19 vaccine is covered by insurance, and DuPage Immediate Care accepts a variety of insurance coverage options. We are currently not accepting walk-ins for the vaccine, but it’s simple to make your appointment online or over the phone. However, make sure to check our page for information and updates about our vaccine availability first.
Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses, separated by 21 days and 28 days, respectively. It’s important that, if you receive the first dose of either of these vaccines, you receive the second dose from the same manufacturer. Our team of Oakbrook healthcare professionals can provide assistance or guidance, if you get your first dose with us, on when to schedule your second.
As of mid-March 2021, nearly 10% of the U.S. population has already received a COVID-19 vaccine. The efforts to vaccinate more people will likely increase in the coming months, starting with the high-priority groups such as healthcare workers, the elderly, government workers, human services staff, people with high-risk medical conditions, and so on. It’s important that you confirm your eligibility to receive the vaccine before attempting to get one.
Here at DuPage Immediate Care, we are proud to be a part of the fight against this deadly disease. We provide COVID-19 vaccines in Oakbrook to qualifying patients with an appointment. If you have questions about the vaccine, please see our vaccine webpage, or give us a call today to learn more.
