The COVID-19 vaccine is already being administered in our area. Lake County Health Department asks that you register now so that you can be notified when you are eligible to receive the vaccine.

Because vaccine supply will be limited at first, certain groups of people who are at higher risk will be eligible for vaccination before others. Currently, the State of Illinois is in Phase 1B; during this phase, the following persons may receive the vaccine:

  • Frontline healthcare workers
  • Long-term care facility residents and staff
  • Persons aged 65 and older.
  • Frontline essential workers, including employees who are or work in:
    • First responders (Fire, Police, 911 workers, security personnel, school officers)
    • Education, congregate child care, pre-K through 12th grade (teachers, principals, student support, student aids, day care workers)
    • Food & agriculture (processing, plants, veterinary health, livestock services, animal care)
    • Manufacturing (industrial production of goods for distribution to retail, wholesale or other manufactures)
    • Corrections workers and inmates (prison / jail officers, juvenile facility staff, workers providing in-person support, inmates)
    • United States Postal Service workers
    • Public transit workers (flight crew, bus drivers, train conductors, taxi drivers, para-transit drivers, in-person support, ride sharing services)
    • Grocery store workers (baggers, cashiers, stockers, pick-up, customer service)
    • Shelters / adult day care (homeless shelter, womens shelter, adult day / drop-in program, sheltered workshop, psycho-social rehab)

In addition to opportunities to receive the vaccine from the Lake County Health Department, your personal health care provider or pharmacy may also be scheduling appointments.

Questions regarding vaccine administration in our area should be directed to the Lake County Health Department or your healthcare provider. The Village of Lake Bluff does not have a direct role in prioritizing vaccine recipients or administering the vaccine.
