New COVID-19 visitor guidelines
As COVID-19 cases go up in the community, we are again tightening visitor policies. No visitors are allowed except on a case-by-case basis in the Community Living Center. Those visits should be coordinated with nurse managers for each floor. Also, we ask that patients arrive alone for appointments. One companion is allowed, if necessary, for health and safety reasons. We thank you for your understanding. We are doing whatever we can to protect our patients, visitors, staff and volunteers.
Appointments continue for first and second doses of Pfizer/Moderna, and booster doses. We urge all vaccinated patients to schedule COVID-19 booster shots as soon as possible. Veteran patients and family member caregivers of veterans (ages 12 and up), call 224-610-3899 to schedule vaccine appointments. Pediatric TRICARE beneficiaries, ages 5-17, call 800-941-4501 to schedule. Pediatric patients must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
NOTE: For more information about availability of second booster shots, 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).
