May 20 & May 26: Vaccine clinics in Downers Grove, Hinsdale expanded for 12 and older
Through its partnership with Osco, Hinsdale Township High School District 86 has secured 6,000 doses of the two-shot Pfizer vaccine for DuPage County students age 12 or older. They can receive their first shot on May 20 at Hinsdale Central High School, 5500 S. Grant St. in Hinsdale or May 26 at Downers Grove South High School, 1436 Norfolk St. in Downers Grove. Their second shot will be administered June 10 at Hinsdale Central and June 16 at Downers Grove South. All inoculations will take place between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and be provided free of charge.

If you would like your student to get vaccinated, please use Osco’s online portal to schedule their appointment. The link for the session on May 20 can be accessed by visiting and the link for the session on May 26 can be accessed by visiting Parents/guardians are welcome to accompany their students to these sessions. 

If your student turned or will be turning 12 between May 1 and May 20 (if scheduling an appointment at Hinsdale Central) or May 26 (if scheduling an appointment at Downers Grove South), please use May 1 as their birth date when signing them up via the portal, and their actual birth date on the consent form referenced further down in this communication. This will enable you to circumvent a glitch with Osco’s portal that is preventing people who reach the eligible age after May 1 from registering for this opportunity.

When scheduling an appointment, select a day and time that will allow for the 45 minutes needed to complete the entire process. In addition, please do not forward or share the portal links with others. Organizers want to make sure they have enough doses of the vaccine.

Anyone who receives the first dose of the vaccine will automatically be scheduled for their second appointment, which will take place on the same day, at the same time and in the same location 21 days later. For example, if an individual receives their first dose at Hinsdale Central on Thursday, May 20, at 10 a.m., they will receive the second one at Hinsdale Central on Thursday, June 10, at 10 a.m. No additional steps are required to schedule the second appointment. Individuals should only be signed up for this opportunity if they are available to receive the second dose exactly three weeks after the first one.

Families need to complete the following tasks prior to their student’s appointment:

  • Print out and complete the Informed Consent for Immunization form. This form must be turned in to the staff from Osco when individuals arrive for their appointment. It must also be signed by a parent/guardian if an individual is younger than 18. If the consent form cannot be completed in advance, there will be print copies available on-site on May 20 and 26. However, students younger than 18 must still have their parents/guardians sign the form in order to get vaccinated.
  • If possible, please make a copy of the front and back of your family’s medical insurance card. If you are unable to make a copy, you or your student will need to bring the insurance card to the appointment. If you do not have insurance, your student can still receive the vaccine. You or your student just need to let the staff from Osco know about your insurance status when you check in for the appointment.
  • When students arrive for their appointment, they or their parent/guardian must have the following items:
    • Informed Consent for Immunization form if they are able to complete it in advance.
    • If they have medical insurance, they will either need a copy of the front and back of the insurance card or the actual card itself. If they do not have insurance, they need to let the staff from Osco know that when they check in.
