COVID-19 Health Protection Level is Medium

Our Health Protection Level has been downgraded to Medium, based on community transmission levels. While we still require facility-provided surgical masks in our facilities, visitor restrictions are lifted. Please note the Community Living Center (and Green House homes) may have stricter rules based on patient COVID-19 cases. Please contact the social worker or nurse manager for your loved one's unit for information.

COVID-19 Vaccinations

We have the bivalent booster! For most people ages 12 and older, the bivalent booster can be given at least two months after completion of any primary COVID-19 vaccination series, or after the last booster dose received. Call now to schedule your appointment, 224-610-3899! 

Pediatric TRICARE beneficiaries, ages 6 months to 17, call 800-941-4501 to schedule. Pediatric patients must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. 

Please go to our COVID-19 vaccination page for the latest information: COVID-19 Vaccines.

Vaccinations are given at the main hospital in North Chicago. Park in the four-story garage, come in the four flagpole/valet parking Ambulatory Care Clinic (Bldg. 133EF) entrance, where screeners will issue surgical masks and direct you to the Immunizations Clinic in Bldg. 133EF (Ambulatory Care Clinic). Don’t forget your vaccination card.


The PACT Act is a historic new law that expands VA health care and benefits for veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxic substances. The law empowers VA to provide generations of veterans - and their survivors - with the care and benefits they've earned and deserve. 

Any veteran or survivor wanting to apply can learn more about the PACT Act by visiting or calling 1-800-MY-VA-411 (800-698-2411). The Lovell FHCC points of contact are Lisa Murphy, 224-610-5514 or Velma Johnson, 224-610-5517.

Mpox (Monkeypox): 

Mpox is a viral infection with a painful or uncomfortable rash or sores, often with flu-like symptoms. Overall, this is still a rare infection. If you think you've been exposed or you're at high risk, talk to your doctor about options to get vaccinated. We are giving the vaccine to patients in high-risk categories. Patients who want to learn more should talk to their Lovell FHCC primary care provider.

Find more information, go to Monkeypox Information.
