More than 3.2 million of the state's residents are eligible for vaccinations under Phase 1B, which includes people age 65 years and older as well as "frontline essential workers."
Current vaccination sites in the state are available by appointment only, but the state plans to launch walk-in locations in the coming weeks, officials previously said.
In addition to the above locations, DuPage County's Health Department relocated its vaccination to clinic to the DuPage County Fairgrounds in Wheaton to expand capacity. The new space opened for vaccinations Wednesday.
Still, despite the added locations, Illinois officials continue to urge patience, saying vaccine supply is limited.
"We are limited by the amount of vaccine available and allocated by the federal government," the governor's office said in a release. "Vaccinations are available only by appointment at this time and we encourage people to check back frequently for open appointments. Until the supply is increased, there will be a great demand and we ask people to be patient."
