Vaccination Information

Good afternoon, Illinois has a large population of people with disabilities. Recent COVID-19 studies have identified several groups within this population as being at high risk of COVID-19 complications and related fatalities. The purpose of this letter is to clarify that family members of certain people are “health care workers” pursuant to the State of Illinois’ Vaccine Administration Plan (VAP) and thus are prioritized for COVID-19 vaccination within Phase 1a. The information from the Illinois Department of Human Services is attached.
