COVID AND COVID VACCINE INFO UPDATE
BOOSTERS ARE NOW APPROVED FOR MODERNA VACCINE RECIPIENTS (6-8 months after last dose) AND JANSSEN VACCINE RECIPIENTS (at least 2 months after the first dose)
Moderna 1/2 dose (50mcg) boosters are for those over 65, 18-64 with underlying health issues that predispose to more serious COVID infections, and those who have significant exposures due to their profession.
Janssen vaccine recipients WHO ARE 18 YRS AND OLDER can mix and match the booster they receive. I do NOT recommend using Janssen boosters for women under 50.
I do NOT have Janssen or Pfizer vaccines at my office. I will schedule MODERNA vaccine days
at my office for those who cannot get to a local pharmacy easily. From one vial of vaccine, I can get up to 28 patients vaccinated in one day: 4- 5 PATIENTS an hour over 6 hours after I puncture the vial. A 15 minute observation period is required of all vaccinees.
The mass vaccination sites, located in Cook County, are currently open to any eligible Illinois resident. Register at: myshotcookcounty.com or call 833-308-1988 (7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Friday) for an appointment: THE SITES HAVE CHANGED AND ARE NO LONGER IN DES PLAINES, FOREST PARK, TINLEY PARK, WRIGLEY FIELD, UNITED CENTER OR SOUTH HOLLAND

Chicago’s COVID-19 vaccine website: www.chicago.gov/covidvax This website is for health care providers as well as the general public. It will be updated frequently as new information about COVID19 vaccines becomes available.

WE REQUIRE THAT ALL PATIENTS WEAR A FACE COVERING IF ENTERING OUR OFFICE; WE RARELY SCHEDULE TELEMEDICINE VISITS VIA FACETIME, SKYPE. OR ZOOM ONLY IF NECESSARY AS THESE PLATFORMS HAVE SEVERAL LIMITATIONS. YOU MAY E-MAIL DR FRENCH TO REQUEST A TELEMED VISIT OR RX REFILLS: email@example.com

"The best internist I have ever seen. He is so smart
and knowledgeable about any medical condition you ask about. He does work very fast peppering you with
questions, but you never get the sense he is rushing. Always
"up" and really seems to enjoy helping his patients. Strongly
recommend " * * * * * Reg S. Chicago, IL on Yelp.com
