COVID-19 Community Vaccination Clinic for Qualifying Residents in 1A, 1B, and 1B+ as Defined by the State of IL
Vaccinations for eligible residents set for April 8 at the Highland Park Country Club
The City of Highland Park is pleased to announce a COVID-19 Community Vaccination Clinic on Thursday, April 8, at the Highland Park Country Club (1201 Park Ave W., Highland Park), made possible through a partnership with Jewel-Osco. The City anticipates serving 600 high-risk residents of Highland Park and neighboring communities through this clinic.
Appointment scheduling will begin on Monday, April 5 at 9:00 AM for Highland Park seniors age 65+, followed by scheduling for Highland Park residents eligible under state guidelines, including those in Phase 1a, Phase 1b, and Phase 1b+ at 11:00 AM. Vaccinations will be delivered in a single dose (Johnson & Johnson). Only one appointment is needed. The COVID-19 vaccine is free. Appointments will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration will be handled by phone only; online self-registration is not available for this event. Once appointments are fully booked, the City will maintain a waitlist should there be surplus doses. In the interest of serving the most vulnerable residents in an equitable manner, the City will first reserve appointments for residents of affordable congregate senior housing buildings.
“Following months of requesting local vaccine access from health officials at all levels of government, we appreciate that Jewel-Osco is partnering with the City to make this lifesaving vaccine available to our most vulnerable residents in a convenient location,” said Mayor Nancy Rotering. “While this event includes vaccinations for those eligible in groups 1A, 1B and 1B+ as defined by the State of Illinois, we will continue our efforts to make the COVID-19 vaccine available and accessible to all Highland Park neighbors as quickly as possible. Vaccine availability will continue to be communicated via eNews, the City’s website, and social media.”
“Since the start of the pandemic City officials have been proactively working to protect the health and safety of residents. We have followed science as we work to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and have taken every necessary step to work collaboratively with health officials, private business, and the public,” said City Manager Ghida Neukirch. “This vaccination event is another step forward as we look to the end of the pandemic. We are grateful for this public-private partnership with Jewel-Osco and the support of the community.”
