COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout

COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout

The supplies of the COVID-19 vaccine are limited at this time.  Everyone who desires the COVID-19 vaccine will ultimately be able to get a shot.

However, until additional vaccine becomes available and allows for expansion to other phases, we ask for the public’s patience and understanding during this process.

Updated: February 18, 2021 – Subject to change based on guidance from CDC, IDPH, and FDA.

COVID-19 Vaccine Plan

The COVID-19 vaccine is a critical tool to safely reach the other side of this pandemic and begin Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois plan. Through the efficient and effective distribution of the vaccine, we can suppress the spread of the virus, rebuild our economy, and save as many lives as possible. Illinois will only distribute a vaccine that is deemed safe. A team of experts in Illinois will review the data submitted to the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for all vaccines submitted for approval, in addition to the thorough reviews being conducted by the FDA. As vaccines move from approval to distribution, the administration will ensure it reaches Illinoisans as quickly as possible using an equity centric approach as we have done throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. As we move forward, it is critical that Illinoisans continue to follow public health mitigations to suppress the spread of the virus until vaccines are ready for widespread distribution.
