*All data are provisional and will change. In order to rapidly report COVID-19 information to the public, data are being reported in real-time. Information is constantly being entered into an electronic system and the number of cases and deaths can change as additional information is gathered. Information for a death previously reported has changed, therefore, today’s numbers have been adjusted.

*** UPDATE *** Press release…

Building on the state’s progress as it moves into the early stages of Phase 1B of the COVID-19 Vaccination Administration Plan, Governor JB 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.

“Today, as we launch the newest phase of our Vaccine Administration Plan for frontline essential workers and those 65 and over, I’m proud to announce our statewide vaccination site locator, searchable by zip code and city, at coronavirus.illinois.gov,” said Governor JB Pritzker. “This site will serve as a hub of all vaccine-related information, directing residents to the appointment booking homepages of our 97 local health departments and our pharmacy partners, which will total hundreds of locations statewide. That also includes information on our first Illinois National Guard mass vaccination site, opening tomorrow at Tinley Park Convention Center, and will be updated as more state-run sites and hundreds of additional local options come online. As federal supply is currently limited and every state in the nation is facing a shortage, I urge all eligible Illinoisans to check back regularly for available appointments – and in the meantime, mask up, keep our distance, wash our hands, and remember we’ll stay healthy and safe if we look out for each other.”

Beginning today, Walgreens is providing vaccines at 92 sites across the state, eligible residents can schedule an appointment here. Jewel-Osco will begin vaccinating eligible residents tomorrow and the link to schedule an appointment is now live and can be found here.

Over the next few days, 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.

Over 3.2 million Illinoisans are eligible for Phase 1B. 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 like doctor’s offices and urgent care clinics. More information about those locations will be released in the coming weeks.

    I tried using the vaccination locator tool. Either it doesn’t work or there are no sites in far northern Illinois between Galena and Lake Michigan


  2. - Dee Lay - Monday, Jan 25, 21 @ 12:56 pm:

    Very Old Soil - I had no problem finding the ones in Galena, Rockford, and points east to the Lake.

    Might be a case of the ol’ user error.

    EOBK&S. (Error occurred between keyboard and screen as the IT folks always told me). I’ll try again.


  4. - very old soil - Monday, Jan 25, 21 @ 1:08 pm:

    Got it.

    A vaccine is becoming more and more widespread.

    Someone needs to say it. Pritzker has done a nice job through this crisis. He’s been careful and fact based. He’s also taken an incredible amount of crap but kept on marching straight ahead. Our numbers look good. Good job JB and good job Illlinois.

    very old soil and Dee Lay, Could you provide more details on the vaccination locator tool? Where can we find it? How long did it take you to learn it, use it?

    I do think know what numbers you are seeing but JB hasn’t been excellent but I will also admit it hasn’t been horrible.
    He has had his ups and downs but the handling of the veterans home was pretty bad.
