Illinois Expanding Mass Vaccination Operations Statewide

Illinois is expanding mass vaccinations operations statewide to meet the growing demand for the COVID-19 vaccine booster. State officials are more than doubling personnel and adding at least 100 people to the regional sites. Also, starting next week, the state’s free Community Based Testing Sites will begin operating six days a week to increase COVID testing availability in Illinois. The change comes as COVID cases continue to surge statewide thanks to the omicron variant.
