If you’ve wanted to get your children over 12 protected with the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccination but missed our vaccination clinic days, we have great news!
Alzein Pediatrics is now offering the Pfizer vaccine to anyone over the age of 12 (they don’t have to be our patient) at personal appointments, at your convenience, in our Evergreen Park office. This vaccine is FREE of charge. Please click here to schedule a vaccine appointment.
The vaccine appointments are located at 2850 West 95th Street, Suite 400 in Evergreen Park, IL.
The Pfizer vaccine is FDA-approved for anyone over the age of 12. You and your child will need two injections, 21 days apart. Based on evidence from clinical trials, the vaccine is 95% effective in preventing COVID-19. Side effects can include:
- Pain, redness and swelling at the injection site
- Fever and chills
- Overall muscle pain
These side effects should disappear within a few days and are signs that your immune system is working to build protection. Side effects are experienced more frequently after the second shot.
Please click here to schedule your family’s Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines for those over 12 years. Please forward this email to anyone you know who may still need the vaccine.

School’s out but summer is flying by. Schedule physicals now!
With the likelihood of more (or in some cases, all) in-person learning as vaccination rates rise and as sports teams fill their rosters, your children will need school and sport physicals this fall. Some children may even need them now for summer leagues.
These appointments fill quickly, so click here to schedule a time that suits your busy summer life.
Your Alzein Pediatrics provider will make sure your child is ready to study and to play, checking height and weight, blood pressure and other vital signs, checking any medications or chronic conditions and looking for any developmental milestones that may need attention. We’ll check your child’s history and your family history, and check ears, nose, throat and vision. We’ll test strength and flexibility, discuss any previous injuries and ask about concerns.
Click here to achedule your child’s sports or school physical now, before the most convenient times for your family are taken.
