[ARCHIVED] AllVax Portal Update

Lake County AllVax

Current Vaccination Phases

Phase 1a: Healthcare Personnel and Long-Term Care Facility Residents

Currently, vaccine supply is limited. The Lake County Health Department continues to vaccinate Phase 1a, healthcare personnel and long-term care facility residents by appointment only. Please make sure you are registered in the AllVax system so we can notify you when you can schedule your appointment. 

Vaccinations at long-term care facilities in Lake County began on December 28, 2020. These are vaccinations are being done by Walgreens and CVS through a federal program. 

Phase 1b: Adults Ages 65 and Older and Frontline Essential Workers

Some local hospitals, healthcare providers, pharmacies, and other partners began giving vaccines on a limited basis to Phase 1b, adults ages 65 and older and frontline essential workers, on January 25. This phase will continue for several months. A map of local providers is available on the State of Illinois website.

The Lake County Health Department is offering appointments to seniors ages 65 and older at the Lake County Fairgrounds. Please make sure you are registered in the AllVax system so we can notify you when you can schedule your appointment. 

Until vaccine supply increases, Lake County will not be expanding to the "Phase 1b plus" group announced by the Governor, which includes people ages 16–64 with co-morbidities, high risk health conditions, and disabilities. Per Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations for transitioning between phases, we will look to move in to the "Phase 1b plus" group when 60-70% of persons within the current phase are vaccinated or when supply of vaccines exceeds demand in the current phase. However, pharmacies and other entities that receive vaccines directly from the state or federal government are free to follow the Illinois expansion that begins February 25, 2021.
