Appointments for qualifying individuals can also be scheduled at vaccine.cookcountyil.gov. You can also sign up for an appointment by calling (833) 308-1988 Monday-Friday 7:00 am - 7:00 pm. Appointments are still limited, however, signing up gives you access to updates and notifications when appointments are available. If you or anyone you know needs assistance signing up for Cook County's vaccination program, contact the Village Hall at (708) 671-3700.

Health officials are encouraging individuals to be patient as vaccine supplies are limited. Cook County Health will only offer appointment slots based on the amount of vaccine on hand and will add appointments as new vaccine shipments arrive.
