FOX32: Starting Monday, any Illinois resident 16 and up will be able to get vaccinated outside of Chicago

Dr. Jain spoke with FOX32 this evening to remind young people to get vaccinated! And remember, the vaccine is most effective starting 2 weeks after the second shot (or the only shot with Johnson & Johnson). Continue to wear your mask after getting vaccinated.

Sign up to get your vaccine as soon as you can! And visit the IMPACT vaccine clearinghouse if you are having any trouble finding an appointment.
