CHICAGO — Building on the state’s Vaccination Administration Plan Governor JB Pritzker announced the locations of four state-support vaccination sites across Cook County that will begin vaccinating Illinois residents today – Tuesday, January 19. The sites are being stood up through support from the Illinois National Guard (ILNG).
The COVID-19 vaccine is a critical tool to safely reach the other side of this pandemic and begin Phase 5 of the Restore Illinois plan. Through efficient and effective distribution of the vaccine, we can suppress the spread of the
virus, rebuild our economy, and save as many lives as possible. Illinois will only distribute a vaccine that is deemed safe. A team of experts in Illinois will review the data submitted to the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for all vaccines submitted for approval, in addition to the thorough reviews being conducted by the FDA.
As vaccines move from approval to distribution, the administration will ensure it reaches Illinoisans as quickly as possible using an equitycentric approach as we have done throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. As we move forward, it is critical that Illinoisans continue to follow public health mitigations to suppress the spread of the virus until vaccines are ready for widespread distribution.
