Vaccinations are being or will be provided by many local health departments across the state.
The current phase of vaccination, Phase 1B, includes approximately 3.2 million people in Illinois. While we are working to increase the number of vaccines administered daily, we are limited by the amount of vaccine available and allocated by the federal government. Vaccinations are available only by appointment at this time and we encourage people to check back frequently for open appointments. Until the supply is increased, there will be a great demand and we ask people to be patient. Individuals should be signing up for an appointment to receive their second dose while they are getting their first vaccination.
