COVID-19 visitor guidelines 

As COVID-19 cases go up in the community, we are again tightening visitor policies. Currently, no visitors are allowed except on a case-by-case basis in the Community Living Center, or any inpatient units. 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.

COVID-19 Vaccinations

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. We expect to begin giving the vaccine to children (TRICARE beneficiaries) 6 months to 5 years old June 30.

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). Don’t forget your vaccination card.


What is Monkeypox? Monkeypox is a rare viral infection that causes a flu-like illness and rash. Currently, there is a limited number of cases in the U.S.

Monkeypox spreads by direct contact with an infected person or their bodily fluids, such as by touching clothing or linens they have used.

Symptoms can include fever, headache, body aches, swollen lymph nodes, chills, exhaustion, and a rash that looks like pimples or blisters on the face, inside the moth, and or other parts of the body, like the hands, feet, or chest.

Anyone with those symptoms should avoid contact with others and contact their healthcare provider for guidance. Find more information on the CDC's website. Learn more »
