Cook County’s first large-scale COVID-19 vaccination site is opening today in south suburban Tinley Park @ the Tinley Park Convention Center. County Board President Toni Preckwinkle says the new site ensures the county is ready as it receives more and more vaccines. The Tinley Park Convention Center, is located at 18451 Convention Center Drive.
County officials expect to be able to provide as many as three-thousand vaccines per day when the Tinley Park site is fully operational and when an adequate amount of the vaccine is available. Cook County is planning to open at least five additional large sites across the suburbs in the coming weeks. Here’s the complete story from The Patch.
Beginning today, Walgreens is providing vaccines at 92 sites across the state, eligible residents can schedule an appointment here. Jewel-Osco will begin vaccinating eligible residents tomorrow and the link to schedule an appointment is now live and can be found here.
Over the next few days, additional pharmacy partners will be coming online and opening registration for appointments. Taken together, these pharmacy partners will provide hundreds of sites in every region of the state.
