Northwest Community opens walk-in vaccination clinic
Northwest Community Healthcare has opened a COVID-19 vaccination clinic for walk-ins Mondays and Wednesdays.
The clinic at 3060 Salt Creek Road in Arlington Heights is administering first doses without an appointment from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Those who received a first dose elsewhere and would like to receive their second dose at the clinic are encouraged to call (847) 618-0242 to schedule the dose and ensure it matches the first shot.
Patients that would prefer a scheduled time for their first dose may call the same number or visit vaccineschedule.nch.org.
"We want to make sure everyone over 16 has easy access to this life-changing vaccination," said Dr. Susan Nelson, vice president of physician operations. "We encourage everyone in the community to protect themselves, their family and the larger community by getting vaccinated."
The hospital has administered more than 40,000 doses of the vaccine.
