Suburban Cook County In-Home COVID-19 Vaccination

The Cook County Department of Health (CCDPH) is working to integrate mobile home health care vaccination services to reach home-bound individuals who are unable to go to the CCDPH's COVID-19 vaccination sites to get the vaccine.

Please note that CCDPH vaccination sites are ADA accessible, and this program is specifically for suburban Cook County residents who are unable to leave home for medical reasons. Individuals living outside suburban Cook County are not eligible for this program. 

Sign up by calling CCDPH's hotline at 833-308-1988 (weekdays from 7am-10pm and Saturdays from 8am-10pm) or sign up online here

To qualify for this program, individuals in suburban Cook County must be a senior or a person with a disability who requires in-home assistance or have to use adaptive equipment (like a ventilator, crutches, a walker, a wheelchair, etc.) and/or accessible transportation to leave home and leaving home is not an option because doing so requires considerable and taxing effort.
