Check COVID-19 Vaccination Website for Appointments

CALUMET CITY— As Illinois rolls out Phase 1B of its COVID-19 Vaccination Administration Plan, Mayor Michelle joins Governor JB Pritzker in encouraging residents to visit: Coronavirus.illinois.gov for information about the COVID-19 vaccine.

Coronavirus.illinois.gov provides eligible residents with nearby vaccination sites, information on how to make an appointment to receive the vaccine, updates on the state’s plan and eligibility, and answers to frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.

The site also includes information on the state’s first Illinois National Guard mass vaccination site, at Tinley Park Convention Center.  Coronavirus.illinois.gov will be updated as more state-run sites and hundreds of additional local options come online.  As federal supply of vaccine is currently limited, please check back frequently for available appointments–and remember: mask up, keep your distance, and wash your hands.

Walgreens is providing vaccines at 92 sites across the state; eligible residents can schedule an appointment at: https://www.walgreens.com/findcare/vaccination/covid-19. Jewel-Osco also is vaccinating eligible residents; the link to schedule an appointment is: https://www.mhealthappointments.com/covidappt.

More than 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.
