Vaccination Goal Set for DuPage County

I was pleased to join our Board of Health President Sam Tornatore, DuPage County Board Members, healthcare partners and elected officials to announce that DuPage County has set a goal to fully vaccinate at least 80-percent of our eligible residents by July 1.  As of April 29, more than 34 percent of DuPage County residents have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Of the DuPage County residents currently eligible, over 60 percent have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose. Additionally, 88 percent of DuPage County residents ages 65 years and older have received at least one COVID-19 vaccine dose.  We are at the head of the pack in vaccination efforts and we are expanding opportunities for residents to get their shot.  DuPage County’s Vaccination Clinic at the DuPage County Fairgrounds will begin offering walk-in vaccinations as of Monday, May 3, to provide convenient opportunities to anyone age 16 years and older. Walk-in opportunities will be available Monday through Saturday between 8:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. Individuals are encouraged to register any time before their visit at www.dupagehealth.org/covid19vaccineregistration.  DuPage Medical Group and Advocate Aurora Health are also expanding access to all residents.  You can learn more and view the entire news conference at https://youtu.be/OdK97FpWcAw 

I encourage all eligible residents to get your shot and help us emerge from this pandemic as soon as possible so we can return to the people and gatherings we love.
