Https //Rebrand.ly/Idph;- In a recent announcement, the Cook County Department of Public Health said that booster injection are now accessible to ALL individuals in the county. Immunization boosters, as well as immunizations for children aged 5 and older, are commonly accessible in suburban Cook County.
A booster injection is available if you are at least 18 years old and it has been at least six months since your last dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine series, or two months after your last dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccination series.
At South Suburban College’s main campus in South Holland, we continue to provide drive-thru COVID-19 testing as well as Johnson & Johnson immunizations at no charge. South Suburban College is a non-profit institution. Individuals 18 years of age or older may get the Johnson & Johnson vaccination in a single dose. Immunizations and COVID-19 testing are provided four days a week, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Monday through Wednesday; Fridays and Saturdays; and COVID-19 testing is accessible Monday through Wednesday only; vaccinations are not available on Saturday. Situated at 15800 South State Street in South Holland, Illinois, the drive-thru setup is located in the Northwest Parking Lot of a shopping center.
It is vital to note that COVID-19 testing remains easily accessible for anyone who may have been exposed to the virus even while immunizations continue to be implemented in Illinois. In Highland Park and Lake Villa this week, a mobile testing unit administered by the Illinois Department of Public Health will be on hand to test for HIV.
Testing is completely free and available to anybody, regardless of their symptoms. To get testing results, you must provide a phone number and your name. The presence of photo identification and evidence of insurance is recommended, but not essential.
Waiting periods for testing may be prolonged if there is high demand. Weather conditions or the exhaustion of daily testing supplies may force testing stations to shut earlier than scheduled. On the IDPH website, you may find a list of additional COVID-19 testing sites as well as more information.
