Dear District 99 Students and Families:
District 99 has partnered with Hinsdale Township High School District 86, which worked with Osco to secure 6,000 doses of the two-shot Pfizer vaccine for eligible students (must be 16 or older) in DuPage County. Students can receive their first dose on May 20 at Hinsdale Central (5500 South Grant Street in Hinsdale) or on May 26 at Downers Grove South High School (1436 Norfolk St in Downers Grove). The second dose will be administered three weeks later: June 10 at Hinsdale Central and June 16 at Downers Grove South High School. 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 be vaccinated, please use the links to Osco's online portal to schedule an appointment, below:
- Thursday, May 20 (returning June 10) at Hinsdale Central: https://bit.ly/2PB1KDI
- Wednesday, May 26 (returning June 16) at Downers South: https://bit.ly/3xzik8k
Please do not forward or share these links with others to ensure that we have enough doses of the vaccine for our students.
Please select a day and time that will allow for the 45 minutes needed to complete the entire process (arriving on-site, waiting in line, presenting the required documentation, receiving the vaccination and being monitored for at least 15 minutes following the injection). As a reminder: school is still in session on May 20 until 1:20 p.m. for grades 9-11 in District 99. District 99 students should try to schedule around school obligations; if needed, please call the attendance office to receive an excused absence.
Those receiving the first dose 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 your student receives their first dose at Hinsdale Central on Thursday, May 20, at 10 a.m., they will receive the second one at Central on Thursday, June 10, at 10 a.m.) No additional steps are required to schedule the second appointment. Students should only sign up for this opportunity if they are available to receive the second dose exactly three weeks after the first one.
