Covid Vaccinations for Students 16+

May 1, 2021

Dear D219 Students and Families,

We are pleased to announce that the Skokie Health Department will be offering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination free of charge to all D219 students who are 16 or older.  The vaccinations require two doses. The shots will be administered in the Niles West Fieldhouse. 

The vaccinations will be administered on the following days:

Dose 1 = Tuesday, May 11 and Wednesday, May 12   (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.)

Dose 2 = Tuesday, June 1 and Wednesday, June 2   (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.)


We will likely designate one day for Niles West students and the other for Niles North, and will communicate the details later. 


Any student who is 16 on or before May 11 and May 12 is eligible to be vaccinated.

They MUST NOT receive any other vaccine in the previous 14 days and must wait until 14 days after dose 2 to receive any other vaccine. Basically, no other vaccines may be administered April 27 through June 17 (preferably longer). 


We will be sending a survey to the families of all students who are 16 (or who will turn 16 by May 11) in Campus Parent Portal asking them to tell us if they would like their child to receive the vaccination at Niles West through the Skokie Health Department. Families should respond to the survey by Tuesday, May 4.

For those families who say yes, we will follow up with consent forms and additional details. 

If you have questions about the vaccination, please call D219 Certified School Nurse Destiny Sadoski at 847.626.2941 or email her at [email protected] 

Thank you.
