Lake County's AllVax Portal Now Open! 

 The Lake County Health Department just announced that the Lake County AllVax Portal is open. All Lake County residents can now register to be notified when a COVID-19 vaccine is available to them. Registering online is easy and secure—just visit AllVax.lakecohealth.org. You can also register over the phone by calling the Lake County Health Department at (847) 377-8130. 

Because vaccine supply will be limited at first, certain groups of people who are at higher risk will be eligible for vaccination before others. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is helping state and local health departments distribute the vaccine fairly. You can find out more about these guidelines on the CDC’s website, ‘How CDC Is Making COVID-19 Vaccine Recommendations’. 

Visit the Health Department’s Coronavirus web page, www.lakecountyil.gov/coronavirus, for updates, testing information, community guidance and resources, answers to frequently asked questions, and to sign up for the Health Department’s weekly COVID-19 newsletter. General questions can be sent via email to COVID19@lakecountyil.gov

 
 
Donations raised from our Homeless Youth Initiative Fundraiser were presented to the Fill A Heart 4 Kids organization by President Walker. These much needed funds allowed the organization to purchase coats and personal essentials for the homeless youth within our community.
Did you know there are 1,035 Homeless Youth living in Lake County Illinois. The Rotary Club of North Chicago wants to help them now! Our goal is to give each youth a new coat along with winter gear, personal items and holiday stockings. Because the weather is getting colder, please consider giving to support this endeavor. It only takes a minute to donate, just click the donate link button now. More info to follow.
 
Club President Angela Walker called upon Medline for PPE gear. Medline stepped up to the plate and hit a home run!
