IDPH Guidances Relating to the COVID-19 Outbreak

What to Expect When Getting Vaccinated Guidance

Guiding Principles

In order to promote a fair process for vaccine administration while vaccine supply is limited, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is asking vaccine providers, such as pharmacies and other healthcare providers, to help ensure that individuals receiving the vaccine are eligible. Currently individuals who fall into Priority Groups 1a or 1b (descriptions below) may be eligible to receive the vaccine because of the work they perform or their age.

At the time you make your vaccine appointment, providers may ask you to identify whether you fall in one of the priority groups that are currently eligible for the vaccine. Before you receive the vaccine, the provider may also ask you to provide documentation of your age or that you are a frontline worker, or ask you to verify that you otherwise fall within one of the eligible categories.
