COVID-19 Vaccination Resources and Updates

The Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) is responsible for coordinating the COVID-19 vaccination roll-out in our area. CCDPH will follow guidelines outlined by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) to vaccinate over 2.5 million residents in Cook County as quickly and efficiently as possible. The County’s overall strategy includes working with partners to ensure equitable access to the COVID-19 vaccine. The Village continues to be in communication with County officials about the vaccination roll-out and will continue to update the community with new information. Below are several resources for more information on the vaccination.

Vaccination Program Updates

Cook County Government, Cook County Health, and Cook County Department of Public Health are offering COVID-19 vaccinations to those living or working in Cook County. The distribution of COVID-19 vaccination will be done in a phased approach as vaccine supply is available and using guidance from local, state, and national public health authorities.

The Cook County Vaccination website, linked here, allows residents to sign up for COVID-19 updates and information to schedule an appointment when administration expands to their phase. Providing all the information requested will ensure proper notification as the program expands. Please frequently visit the website to access the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 and the vaccine distribution program. Cook County also offers a vaccine sign-up hotline at (833) 308-1988.

The Vaccine is also being administered in a variety of locations throughout the county, including hospitals and select WalgreensMariano’sCVSWal-Mart, and Jewel-Osco stores. 

In addition, the state of Illinois has launched its own COVID-19 vaccination website. The site will provide 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.

Tips for calling 9-1-1 to Protect the Community and First Responders from COVID-19

Protecting the community and our paramedics and firefighters are paramount during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our 9-1-1 dispatchers will be asking the following questions of any caller requesting a service that requires face-to-face contact.

  • Does the patient or anyone on the scene have a fever, cough, or trouble breathing?
  • Has the patient traveled outside the United States or had close contact with someone who recently traveled outside the United States and was Sick?
  • Has anyone been exposed to an individual known to have or suspected of having COVID-19?
  • Has anyone on-scene tested positive for COVID-19?

We are asking our residents to review these questions with everyone in their household now. Knowing the answers ahead of an emergency will make it easier to recall should the need arise. Please respond honestly to the questions, as they help our first responders take appropriate actions and wear proper personal protective equipment to avoid exposure when they respond. Keeping our EMS/Fire personnel healthy will help us keep the Village of Lincolnwood safe!
