With more coronavirus vaccines arriving in the Chicago area, health departments announced new vaccination clinics will open next week.
Illinois entered Phase 1B plus, opening up doses to those with certain high-risk medical conditions and comorbidities. Chicago and several surrounding suburbs, however, remain under Phase 1B guidelines, which opens up vaccinations to people age 65 years and older, as well as "frontline essential workers."
Eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine will expand to all Illinois residents over the age of 16, except for those in the city of Chicago, beginning on April 12, Illinois officials announced this week.
Here's a list of the vaccination sites opening next week, as well as who is eligible to receive a dose:
ST. ROSE CHURCH IN WILMINGTON
Beginning the week of March 22, Will County residents can begin receiving vaccine doses in Wilmington at St. Rose Church, and in Monee at the former Second Place Church starting the week of March 29. Both locations will provide vaccinations to those eligible under Phase 1B.
