D86 to hold COVID-19 booster clinic Nov. 17

Hinsdale High School District 86 is partnering with Jewel-Osco to host a COVID-19 booster shot clinic from noon to 6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17, at Hinsdale Central, 55th and Grant streets.

This event is open to community members who are 18 years or older and either completed the two-dose series of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine at least six months ago (i.e., no later than May 17, 2021) or received the Johnson and Johnson vaccine at least two months ago (i.e., no later than Sept. 17, 2021). It is also open to family members of District 86 employees’ family members, and employees from feeder districts and local villages.

Students under the age of 18 are not currently eligible for the booster shot.

A separate clinic will be held Dec. 3 for district employees.

Jewel-Osco has made 900 slots available for the clinic, but can add more if necessary. Only the Pfizer and Moderna boosters will be administered during the event (i.e., there will be no Johnson and Johnson booster). However, people who received the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson and Johnson vaccine can get either booster free of charge.
