State of Illinois Announces COVID-19 Vaccination Website

From Illinois Manufacturers’ Association: As Illinois moves into Phase 1B of the COVID-19 Vaccination Administration Plan (which includes manufacturing), a new portal was announced yesterday to provide residents with easily accessible information about the COVID-19 vaccine.

Walgreens is now providing vaccines at 92 sites across the state, eligible residents can schedule an appointment here. Jewel-Osco will begin vaccinating eligible residents today and the link to schedule an appointment can be found here.

Over the next few days, additional pharmacy partners will be coming online and opening registration for appointments. Taken together, these pharmacy partners will provide hundreds of sites in every region of the state. Over 3.2 million Illinoisans are eligible for Phase 1B. Eligible residents will be able to receive a vaccine at one of the Illinois National Guard (ILNG) assisted sites, at a site operated by a local health department, or at a partner pharmacy.

At this time, these sites will be available by appointment only. As the federal supply of vaccines increases and Illinois receives more vaccine, the state will launch walk-in locations and expand sites to additional providers like doctor’s offices and urgent care clinics. More information about those locations will be released in the coming weeks and members can use the IMA’s list of county public health departments for more information as well.
