COVID Vaccine 1B
COVID Vaccine Update:
Illinois will move to Phase 1b of COVID-19 vaccine distribution beginning Monday, January 18.
Our office is currently developing strategies to maximize community distribution. Please be aware that not everyone in Phase 1b will be vaccinated immediately due to limited allocations of the vaccine from the State. Our office is working diligently to vaccinate individuals as safely and quickly as possible. We appreciate your patience with us.
As soon as the State provides our office with vaccine allocation information, we will notify the public about scheduled clinics via Facebook, our website and media outlets. Appointments will be required for both doses of COVID-19 vaccines. Limited vaccination tickets will be available ONLINE ONLY with advanced online appointment scheduling. A valid ticket is required for vaccination. Walk in vaccinations will not be offered.
Be prepared to help your family, friends and neighbors who may not have access to the Internet or a printer. Thank you for your kindness and cooperation.
Stay tuned for more information . . . . .
