Steps To Keep You Safe
COVID-19 Vaccination Phased Approach
The State of Illinois is now in COVID-19 Vaccine Phase 1b for residents age 65 and older, and frontline essential workers. NorthShore is communicating directly with our current patients 65 and older by email with steps to prepare to receive the vaccine as we get doses from the appropriate local public health agencies. If you are a current patient and at least 65 years old, please follow these steps to ensure you are prepared.
Please Note: At this time NorthShore is only preparing to vaccinate individuals 65 and older along with those in the existing 1a group (healthcare workers and residents and staff of long term care facilities.) Frontline essential workers (in Phase 1b) can receive vaccine access information by contacting their local public health agencies:
Lake County Health Department or 847.377.8000
City of Evanston Health & Human Services or 3-1-1 or 847.448.4311
Village of Skokie Health Department or 847.933.8252
Cook County Department of Public Health or 708.836.4755
Chicago Department of Public Health or 3-1-1 or 312.746.4835
As more vaccine becomes available groups will widen and this page will be updated. For more information on the phases and the vaccination itself, you can read below, or view the IDPH Phased Vaccination Plan.
