When will I be able to get a vaccine? How will they be distributed?

It is anticipated that the initial vaccine supply will be limited, and therefore allocated to health care personnel and long-term care (LTC) residents and staff. LTC facilities in McLean County are receiving their vaccine allotments through a federal program administered by CVS and Walgreens. Phase 1a healthcare organizations are asked to email health@mcleancountyil.gov with their contact information to find out more information.
