[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Vaccination Update

Vaccine Close Up - COVID19

Phase 1A:  Illinois is currently in Phase 1A of vaccinations which targets frontline healthcare workers as well as residents and staff of long-term care facilities. The goal is to fortify the healthcare workforce by removing the most exposed workers from the cycle of illness and infection as well as protect our most vulnerable residents. The state estimates that all interested residents in Phase 1A will be vaccinated in the coming weeks.

Phase 1B:  Once Illinois makes substantial progress in Phase 1A and federal vaccine deliveries increase, Phase 1B will expand to frontline essential workers and residents age 65 and over. The frontline essential workers designation includes many residents who carry a higher risk of COVID-19 exposure because of their work duties, often because they are unable to work from home, and/or they must work closely to others without being able to socially distance. This include first responders, education, food and agriculture, manufacturing, corrections workers and inmates, USPS workers, public transit workers, grocery store workers and staff at shelters and day cares. 

Please visit the COVID-19 page of the Village website to read the entire update from the Illinois Department of Public Health.
