Links to Sign Up for the COVID-19 Vaccine
 
On January 25, 2021, Governor Pritzker announced a new portal on coronavirus.illinois.gov to provide residents with easily accessible information about the COVID-19 vaccine. Coronavirus.illinois.gov 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.  Please remember, available vaccine supply is the single most important factor in getting your vaccine and currently, appointment demand far outpaces available vaccines at this time.  Until vaccines are more readily available, health professionals are asking for patience and to continue practicing the three (3) W's - Wear a mask, Wash your hands, and Watch your distance.  
 
Walgreens, Jewel-Osco, CVS, and others will be providing vaccines at sites across Illinois where eligible residents can schedule an appointment, once the vaccines are available.   It is anticipated that 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.  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 such as doctor's offices and urgent care clinics. More information about those locations will be released in the coming weeks.

Illinois is currently in Phases 1A and 1B of the vaccine distribution effort. Below are links to sign up for the vaccine and receive additional information when it becomes available.
