COVID-19 Vaccination Information

Current Eligibility

A safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is a critical component of the U.S. strategy to reduce COVID-19-related illnesses, hospitalizations, and deaths.

Vaccines are now widely available. In most cases, you do need an appointment. 

All currently authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines:

  • Are SAFE
  • Are EFFECTIVE, and
  • REDUCE YOUR RISK of severe illness.

Neither the CDC or IDPH recommend one vaccine over the other.  You are encouraged to get whichever COVID-19 vaccine is available to you as soon as possible.

There is no co-pay for individuals with insurance and no charge for the uninsured.
