We are continuing our series with members of the NCH Community who want others to know their reason for getting their COVID-19 vaccine booster.

Why I got boosted: I’ve worked at NCH for almost eight years, and I have the honor and privilege of supporting our frontline team members. I also lead the NCH choir, a group of employee volunteers who sing to lift the spirits of our colleagues, patients and community. Due to COVID-19, we’ve had to cancel many events that brought joy, hope and healing to the NCH family. I got vaccinated so that someday soon we can gather together without masks to sing again. Music is a sort of magic – it’s medicine for the soul!
In layman’s terms, a booster adds increased protection from severe disease.
Boosters are now available at NCH for anyone age 12+ who have completed their second dose of Pfizer more than 5 months ago; or for those age 18+ who have completed their second dose of Moderna more than 5 months ago.
NCH is providing booster doses at our COVID-19 VACCINE CLINIC located at 3060 Salt Creek Lane, Arlington Heights. Presently, appointments for Pfizer are on Tuesdays, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Wednesdays, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Appointments for Moderna are on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There are three ways to schedule your booster:
If you’ve already been vaccinated and boosted, whether at NCH or another healthcare provider, we thank you!
