Guidelines for the Next Phase of Illinois COVID 19 Vaccines Have Been Announced

Governor JB Pritzker recently announced the guidelines for the next phase of coronavirus distribution across the state. Phase 1B will start when Phase 1A is substantially finished. The next phase of COVID-19 vaccine will include all state residents who are sixty-five and older and frontline essential workers.  To be able to cut down on mortality and limit community spread in Black and Brown communities, the state has decreased the age eligibility in Phase 1B by a decade. The next phase of COVID 19 distribution totals around 3.2 million people throughout the state. As the state enters the next phase of COVID 19 vaccination administration will be making use of every very available resource at the state’s disposal to make sure as many residents can get vaccinated as possible. The Illinois National Guard will be helping to develop of mass vaccination sites and Illinois will be growing the number of providers who are currently enrolled in the Illinois vaccination database in order to support widespread availability when it’s time.
