================================================================

Updated 1/25/21

The State and the County have announced that that the vaccine plan will move to Phase 1b on today (Monday, January 25th). As of today, the Village has not yet received details on how or when eligible residents will be able to get the vaccine.  The Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) has advised that vaccine supply remains extremely limited.

The local vaccination process is being coordinated entirely by the State of Illinois and Cook County, and the Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH) is responsible for the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine in Suburban Cook County. The Village is doing everything we can to support the vaccine distribution effort.

Residents are encouraged to sign up for updates on COVID-19 vaccine from CCDPH by completing a survey on their website (https://cookcountypublichealth.org/). The Village will also share all relevant information about the COVID-19 vaccine on our Facebook page, and our website.

The CDC, IDPH and CCDPH website also offer information and FAQs about the vaccine.
