Illinois Adds Booster & Test Availability
Illinois will work with local health departments to help more people get booster shots. Monday Governor JB Pritzker announced the state will more than double the number of people staffing regional sites to administer vaccinations, prepare vaccine doses for clinic personnel, and to do data entry.
In addition, starting next week, the state’s free Community Based Testing Sites will begin operating six days a week to increase COVID-19 testing availability across the state.
In recent weeks, the state of Illinois partnered with Cook County Health to offer two, one day booster clinics, resulting in about the administering of 7,000 shots.
Appointments can be made at each clinic at the links below. Many locations will also accept walk ups.
