Illinois Adds Booster & Test Availability


In addition, starting next week, the state’s free Community Based Testing Sites will begin operating six days a week to increase COVID-19 testing availability across the state.

In recent weeks, the state of Illinois partnered with Cook County Health to offer two, one day booster clinics, resulting in about the administering of 7,000 shots.

Appointments can be made at each clinic at the links below. Many locations will also accept walk ups.
