As of Wednesday, May 12, everyone ages 12 and up are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in Illinois. We encourage everyone who is eligible to get a vaccine as soon as they are able to schedule one.
The CDC now recommends that people whose immune systems are compromised moderately to severely should receive an additional does of mRNA COVID-19 vaccine after their initial 2 doses. The additional dose should be received at least 28 days following the second dose of initial Pfizer or Moderna mRNA vaccine series. (No booster is recommended if your initial vaccine was the Johnson & Johnson single dose vaccine.)
