The links below are some additional information regarding the Covid-19 vaccinations available for Kane County Seniors, as well as additional mobile testing centers that will be opening up shortly.
• Illinois has partnerships with Walgreens, CVS, and Jewel-Osco and by February 1, we expect to add 8 additional pharmacy partners to that list.
• Soon, people will be able to visit coronavirus.illinois.gov to find a vaccination site near them and links to make appointments at those sites.
• Appointments will fill up fast, but new sites will be added frequently so we will encourage people to check back.
• People should not simply go to a retail pharmacy to seek a vaccination. At this time, vaccines will be given by appointment only.
• There is an estimated 3.2 million Illinoisans in Phase 1b.
• Until the vaccine supply from the federal government increases, vaccination appointments will be scarce, so we ask that people be patient. It will take time before everyone in Phase 1b will be able to get an appointment for vaccination.
• Once more vaccine is available, plans are in place to distribute the vaccine more broadly.
• Ultimately, the goal is that people will be able to go to their local urgent care center, doctor’s office, or even a clinic at their workplace to be vaccinated.
• When we have a steady stream of vaccine coming in from the federal government, we will launch sites that allow for walk-ins and other considerations for people who are not able to make an appointment online.
• There is no cost to individuals to get a COVID vaccine. You may be asked to bring your insurance card if you have one, but you will not be turned away if you do not have insurance.
• Similarly, undocumented individuals will not be turned away.
• We ask that you seek vaccination in the county in which you reside as vaccine allocation is partially based on county population.
Both DeKalb and Kane County have information on how to sign up for and obtain COVID-19 vaccinations. Listed below are links to both DeKalb County and Kane County health departments and the instructions on how to sign up to receive the vaccination.
