McHenry County now using state vaccine registration page
If you work in manufacturing, the restaurant business or the construction trades, you’re now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
You can help us get beyond mitigations by getting inoculated, so please read on to learn how to sign up.
The McHenry County Department of Health is now using the state’s COVID-19 vaccine registration page in the wake of the state’s expansion of Phase 1b eligibility.
Anyone who already has received their first vaccine through MCDH will receive an email directing them how to schedule their second appointment when it is due.
People without Internet or who need translation services can schedule an appointment through the MCDH Call Center at 815-334-4045, or by calling the Illinois Department of Public Health hotline at 833-621-1284.
The MCDH will be working as fast as possible to accommodate people in the expanded Phase 1b group until April 12, when vaccine eligibility will open to all Illinois residents age 16 and over.
Retail pharmacies are another option for receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. Locations of participating pharmacies can be found at http://coronavirus.illinois.gov,
or in the MCDH vaccine locator page at http://bit.ly/MCDHFindVaccine.
The MCDH has included a step-by-step video that walks you through the registration process.
This new system was explained at a virtual town-hall meeting streamed on the Facebook pages of McHenry County government and the health department. If you missed it, you can click here
