It's wild to think that almost a year later we're finally in the midst of the COVID-19 vaccine getting rolled out. And now that we're in that phase, do you know if you're eligible to receive the vaccine? Good news Illinois, there's actually a website that just launched to make this whole phase of the pandemic a little less confusing.

Governor Pritzker announced a new portal to provide residents with accessible information about the COVID-19 vaccine. Like I said, it's a really great resource to navigate this phase of the pandemic. So what resources can you find on the new portal? WIFR details -

The portal will provide 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, according to Gov. Pritzker’s office.

Pharmacies are also starting to offer the vaccine. Walgreens will provide vaccines at 92 sites across Illinois, eligible residents can schedule an appointment here. Jewel-Osco will begin vaccinating eligible residents Tuesday and the link to schedule an appointment is now live and can be found here.

More pharmacies are joining the list as well. So if you have any vaccine questions, this portal is a really good resource. And the best part? It seems really easy to navigate. Right at the top of the site they offer resources for

  1. Vaccine locations
  2. Vaccine eligibility
  3. Region status
  4. Testing sites

So if you have any questions, look no further than this super helpful site.
