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.
Limited amounts of the vaccine are also being administered in a variety of locations throughout the county, including hospitals and select Walgreens, Mariano’s, CVS, Wal-Mart, and Jewel-Osco stores. Additionally, large-scale Cook County sites are being set up, and the first opened on January 26 in Tinley Park.
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.
