Loyola Medicine COVID-19 Vaccination Request

COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

At this time, Loyola Medicine is beginning to offer COVID vaccinations to individuals 65 years of age or older and essential workers in accordance with guidelines from the Cook County Department of Public Health. Because vaccine supply is allocated by our state, however, it is still limited and will take time to vaccinate everyone who is eligible.

The state of Illinois and county health departments are offering vaccine registration and lists of vaccine resources on their websites. 

Please check http://coronavirus.illinois.gov/s/vaccination-location for details on opportunities to receive vaccination at one of these sites. 

When Loyola Medicine has a supply of vaccine, an option to directly schedule a COVID-19 vaccination appointment will become available in myLoyola on the “schedule an appointment” page.  Please log in to myLoyola on a routine basis to see when appointments become available.  Pre-registration and wait lists are not available.  

Please continue to monitor https://loyolamedicine.org/coronavirus and https://cookcountypublichealth.org for updates and additional information about COVID-19 vaccination.

Email communications regarding myLoyola account activation and scheduling tickets will go to the email account that you entered on the online registration form.

I completed the online registration form, but I have not received an email about the COVID-19 vaccination yet. What should I do?

Vaccine Appointment FAQs

Where are Loyola’s vaccine clinics?

Vaccinations are available for those eligible at Loyola University Medical Center, Gottlieb Memorial Hospital and MacNeal Hospital.

Can I get my second vaccine at a different location?

No. All patients should receive both doses of the same vaccine from the same provider. This will help the Dept. of Public Health track and allocate vaccine doses accurately to providers participating in vaccine administration.

I made an appointment for the COVID-19 vaccination but want to reschedule it. Can I do that?

Yes. Go to your myLoyola account and select the “reschedule” button for your vaccination appointment. Please do not use the “cancel” button.

Dialog box to cancel appointments

I accidentally canceled my appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine, and now I don’t have a scheduling ticket anymore.

Unfortunately, you will no longer be able to schedule your appointment online. Please call the Patient Access Center at 888-584-7888 to schedule your vaccination appointment.

I received a message that my appointment for the COVID-19 vaccine was canceled. What do I do to reschedule?

Vaccines are subject to availability from the state of Illinois. Sometimes, we will need to cancel your appointment to accommodate our vaccine quantity. Within an hour of that initial cancellation message, you will receive another email notification about a new scheduling ticket in your myLoyola account. Use the new scheduling ticket to schedule a new COVID vaccination appointment.

I am not a health care or EMS worker, but I received a scheduling ticket, which I acted upon. Can I still receive the vaccination, as scheduled?

Unfortunately, you cannot. Please do not present for your vaccination. Vaccination is administered in accordance with the Illinois Department of Health (IDPH) determination of priority. Please access your myLoyola account and cancel your appointment. If you present for your vaccination, you will be turned away.

Do I need to bring any forms of ID with me to the vaccination appointment?

Yes, please bring a government-issued identification card, your insurance card, and your work ID card for verification. All vaccine recipients will be prompted to complete an attestation of occupation to ensure the vaccines are administered in accordance to the IDPH guidelines.

The direct activation link allows you to activate your myLoyola account without an activation code, but the link will expire 24 hours after receiving the email message.
