DCHD is working to vaccinate people in alignment with the Phase 1a recommendations from the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) which includes healthcare personnel (HCP), as defined by CDC and further definedby the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), including updates provided on 1/10/21.
Phase 1a includes HCP in:
Other identified congregate care staff and residents
HCP will be required to present verification of their healthcare personnel status, i.e., employee ID badge, check stub, state licensure, or certificate.
Vaccination is by appointment only and dependent on vaccine supply.
As the vaccine supply provided by the State of Illinois/IDPH is allocated based on county jurisdiction, DCHD is further prioritizing its administration of vaccine for individuals who reside, work, or attend college/university in DuPage County. Individuals presenting for vaccination at a DCHD location may be asked to provide verification of residence, employment, or school attendance within DuPage County.
At this time, we are only providing vaccinations to healthcare personnel (HCP) 18 years and older.
Vaccination prioritization will continue to change as COVID-19 vaccine supply increases in the coming weeks.
