Dear CCSD21 families,

As was shared earlier, CCSD21 is pleased to offer a COVID-19 vaccine clinic in partnership with Jewel-Osco. This vaccination opportunity is open to any member of our community who will be 12 or older on Friday, May 21.

The first dose of the Pfizer vaccine will be administered on Friday, May 21. The second dose will be administered on Friday, June 11. The clinic will be held at London Middle School (1001 W. Dundee Rd., Wheeling).

Step 1: Click here to make an appointment through Jewel-Osco. The June 11 appointment will automatically be scheduled for the same time as the May 21 appointment. Please note you will need to make a separate appointment for each individual who will receive the vaccine.

While we recommend a parent or guardian accompany their child to the vaccine appointment, they are not required to be present. All individuals receiving a vaccine will need to provide a consent form at the time of the vaccine; patients that are 12-17 years old will need their parent or legal guardian to sign the form. If the parent/legal guardian will not be with the child at the time of the vaccine, the consent form will need to be signed by the parent/legal guardian in advance and sent with the child to the appointment.

Step 2: Complete this form in ParentSquare. Families may also call their school secretary to complete the form.

Step 3: Attend both vaccine appointments at the scheduled time: Friday, May 21, and Friday, June 11.

Please bring the following to both appointments (or send them with your child if they are attending the appointment alone):

  • Completed Jewel-Osco consent form (en Español). A blank form will also be emailed to you with your confirmation from Jewel-Osco and extra copies are available at school. For minors under the age of 18, this must be completed by a parent/legal guardian. Please sign and date on the line provided AND print your name and relationship to the minor (even though there isn’t a specific line to add this information).
  • Completed CCSD21 consent form (en Español). This consent form is only required if a child will attend the vaccine clinic without a parent/legal guardian.
  • Insurance card, if applicable. There is NO COST to you for the vaccine and insurance coverage is not required. However, insurance companies reimburse Jewel-Osco for hosting community events like these if insurance coverage applies.

We appreciate your continued support as we work to provide opportunities to prioritize the safety of our students, staff, and community, and to take another step to getting back to a more normal school experience.
