What can I do?

It’s easy to schedule an appointment convenient to where you live, and there are also many locations where no appointment is required and you can just walk in.

To find a vaccination location near you, visit, or call the vaccine helpline at 847-377-8130. You may also create an account or login to your current account on the Lake County Health Department's AllVax portal to schedule an appointment.
