The first supply of COVID-19 vaccine receiving Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) began being distributed in the U.S. on December 14, 2020. During the initial period, referred to as Phase 1a, supplies of the vaccine are limited, and therefore allocated to health care personnel and long-term care (LTC) residents and staff. Vaccine supply is expected to increase over time. Phase 1b began statewide on Monday, January 25, which includes non-healthcare frontline essential workers and persons over 65 years old. On February 25, the State of Illinois moved to the Vaccination Plan Phase 1B+ which includes persons with high risk conditions.

A portal on the State's website, coronavirus.illinois.gov, provides residents with easily accessible information about the COVID-19 vaccine. The portal provides eligible residents with nearby vaccination sites, information on how to make an appointment to receive the vaccine, updates on the state’s plan and eligibility and answers to frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 vaccine.

On March 12, IDPH launched the Vaccine Appointment Call Center to assist people who do not have access to or who have difficulty navigating online services in making appointments to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. The Vaccine Appointment Call Center phone number is 833-621-1284 and can take TTY calls.

All Illinoisans age 12 and up are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine.
