All three COVID vaccines, Pfizer, Moderna and Janssen, are available to all at the Kane Vax Hub. Pediatric doses of the Pfizer vaccine are also available.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends boosters for individuals 18 and older who received the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine at least two months ago. Booster shots are also recommended for people who received a Pfizer/Comirnaty or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at least six months ago.
The CDC allows for the mixing and matching of the type of vaccine. Those who received the Janssen primary dose may receive a booster of Janssen, Moderna or Pfizer/Comirnaty two months after their primary dose. Those who received the Moderna and Pfizer/Comirnaty primary series may receive a booster of Janssen, Moderna or Pfizer/Comirnaty six months after their last dose.
People should talk to their healthcare provider about their medical condition and whether getting an additional dose is appropriate for them.
The Kane County Health Department has identified more than 90 community partners that also provide COVID-19 vaccine. An updated list is available online.
Businesses and community organizations can request a vaccination clinic at their site thru the Illinois Department of Public Health.
