Vaccine Clinic Registration for Northfield Township Elementary School Families

Dear Families,

All of the elementary school districts in Northfield Township have collaborated to offer vaccine clinics for our students ages 5-11. Since our last communication, we have added additional opportunities to ensure that all families are able to access appointments.

Northbrook Clinic

  • Thursday, November 11 (1st dose) / December 2 (2nd dose) 
  • Wednesday, November 17 (1st dose) / December 8 (2nd dose)

Appointments are available from 2 p.m. - 7:45 p.m. at both clinics. 

Sign up for an appointment at these clinics here.

You will receive a reminder card for your child’s second dose at your first appointment. Please bring that card, your child’s vaccination card, and a completed and signed consent form (yes, you must complete and sign two consent forms, one for each appointment). 

Glenview Clinic 
Two Pfizer vaccine clinics, in partnership with the Illinois Emergency Management Agency, have been scheduled at District 34 schools (Glen Grove, Hoffman and Pleasant Ridge Schools) on:

  • Friday, November 12 (1st dose) / December 3 (2nd dose) 
  • Thursday, November 18 (1st dose) / December 9 (2nd dose)

Sign up for an appointment at these clinics here
Completing this form secures your appointment. When you arrive, you will need to complete your registration and sign a consent form, so please arrive a few minutes early. A parent or legal guardian must sign the consent form. 

If you have questions about these clinics, please email Cathy Kedjidjian (ckedjidjian@glenview34.org).


Please note that these clinics will only have pediatric doses; there will not be an opportunity to vaccinate children 12+, or adults. If your child is turning 12 soon, please talk to a trusted health advisor about which vaccine is best for your child. Also talk to a trusted health advisor if your child recently tested positive for COVID. 

We will resend this email with a registration link here on Saturday, November 6 at noon. 

Here’s what to bring to your child’s vaccination appointments: 

  • Parent or guardian identification.
  • Proof of insurance (if you have insurance) -- but insurance is not required.
  • Completed and signed consent form. Please complete and sign the form before arrival. A parent or legal guardian must sign this form. It’s important that the parent/guardian name is also clearly printed on the form, and that the child’s birth date is correct. It is strongly advised that a parent accompanies their child; if another caregiver brings your child, they cannot complete the consent form. 

For space and safety purposes, we ask that only one parent or guardian accompanies each child.

Vaccination is by appointment only; walk-ins will not be allowed. If you make an appointment for your child and later have a conflict, please go into the system to cancel your appointment to make it available to another child in our community.  

You don’t need to register for your child’s second dose appointment; it is automatically scheduled at the same time, exactly three weeks after the first:

  • If your child receives their first dose on November 11, their second appointment is December 2
  • If your child receives their first dose on November 17, their second appointment is December 9

You will receive a reminder card for your child’s second dose at your first appointment. Please bring that card, your child’s vaccination card, and a completed and signed consent form (yes, you must complete and sign two consent forms, one for each appointment). 

As with older children and adults, you will have to remain in an observation area for at least 15 minutes after the vaccine is administered. The room will be set up with activities for children and information for parents about the vaccine in general, and how to prepare for the second dose. 

Other Vaccine Opportunities
If space is full, parents or legal guardians can access other vaccination opportunities for their children at Walgreens or CVS:

Easing Anxiety 
We know that some children have fears or anxiety about getting shots. Staff members from the schools have been putting their care and creative talents together and working with Northbrook and Glenview Village officials and Jewel-Osco to make the environment as comfortable and child friendly as possible. You can expect music, distractions and, of course, little gifts (including white lab coats and lunch bags from Jewel-Osco). We encourage you to ask your child to pick out their favorite stuffed animal to bring with them; let them know that their animal friend will be able to get a shot, too! 

The following articles give some guidance for parents about easing children’s anxiety about shots (and one key point highlighted from each):
