The village of Brookfield in partnership with Jewel-Osco and Brookfield-LaGrange Park School District 95 will hold a second pop-up vaccine clinic on Sunday, May 16 at S.E. Gross Middle School 3524 Maple Ave.
The morning hours will be for those receiving their second dose of the Pfizer vaccine and who have already made appointments with Jewel-Osco to do so. About 1,000 people were vaccinated with a first dose of the Pfizer vaccine during the first clinic at S.E. Gross Middle School on April 25.
However, from 1 to 3 p.m. on May 16, first or second doses of the Pfizer vaccine will be available on a walk-in basis to anyone age 12 or older.
Village Trustee Jennifer Hendricks, who has been part of the team organizing and staffing the clinics, said there will be about 200 doses available to walk-ins, though there could be more depending on how many of those with appointments in the morning are no-shows.
Jewel-Osco would like walk-ins to bring a driver’s license and insurance card for purposes of keeping track of who is being vaccinated, but the shots are free and anyone may get it, with or without documentation. The only exception is for children 12-18, who need a parent present for consent.
For those walk-ins who are receiving a first dose, clinic volunteers will provide them with cards listing several options for where to get a second dose of the Pfizer vaccine, since the village does not have a third pop-up planned at this time.
