    IDPH Works with Local Health Departments to Balance First and Second Doses

    SPRINGFIELD – Beginning the week of February 15, local health departments and other COVID-19 vaccine providers will begin to receive a larger share of second doses to accommodate a greater number of second doses coming due.  With federal shipments of the vaccine to Illinois remaining limited, this will mean providers will receive a smaller share of first doses.  Based on federal projections of vaccine shipments, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) anticipates these allocations will hold steady for the next several weeks, before allocations of first doses can once again increase in March.

    IDPH has communicated extensively with local health departments and other providers to prepare for this shift in allocations and ensure those due for second doses can...
