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’.
