4,747,845 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in Illinois, representing about 30% of residents 16 and up receiving their first dose. And on April 12, vaccines will be available for everyone.
Illinois is launching its 14th mass vaccination site in Forest Park. Governor JB Pritzker and local officials announced the Illinois National Guard supported site, which will operate at the former HOBO store in Forest Park and will open to all Illinois residents Friday, March 26.
“Since day one, our Illinois COVID-19 Vaccination Plan has been an all-hands-on-deck effort, and as the national supply has expanded, so too has the number of locations Illinoisans can get vaccinated,” said Governor JB Pritzker. “With this location in Forest Park, we have now strategically established three of our largest mass vaccination sites – open to all Illinoisans – at Tinley Park in the southwest, this new site in the western suburbs, and Des Plaines in the northwest, meaning that our highest density Cook and Collar Counties communities all have a convenient state-supported option for getting vaccinated.”
“And thanks to our exemplary Illinois National Guard, the 900 vaccination sites across the state, and the great work of our 97 local public health departments and healthcare professionals, Illinois has administered over 4.7 million doses of the lifesaving COVID-19 vaccines. That’s amazing progress – and we’ll make even greater strides when we open up to all adults starting April 12.”
Today, any Illinois resident in phase 1A, 1B and 1B+, as well as government workers, higher education staff, and media can receive a free COVID-19 vaccine regardless of their zip code, immigration status, or health insurance at the following state-supported mass vaccination sites Sangamon, Jackson, Winnebago, Madison, St. Clair, Adams, Kane, DuPage, and five sites across Cook County.
There are now more than 900 vaccination locations in Illinois open to the public, and these locations can be viewed online at https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/s/.
State-supported vaccination sites listed below are open to all Illinois residents unless otherwise noted. All sites require appointments through the local health department. Residents must meet the state’s current eligibility requirements to book an appointment.
