The LaSalle County Health Department anticipates being able to move into
Phase 1B as early as next week. Phase 1B will include frontline essential
workers and residents age 65 and older. In the beginning stages of Phase
1B, priority will be given to individuals age 65 years and older, as they
have experienced the highest mortality rate. In preparation and planning,
LaSalle County Health Department is collecting information on the number
of persons in Phase 1B (as defined by ACIP and IDPH) who are eligible
and who intend to receive the vaccine through LaSalle County.
To be notified of COVID-19 vaccination clinics, we are asking
anyone eligible for Phase 1B to complete the "COVID-19 Vaccine Notification Sign-up" Form.
Please visit LaSalle County's website at
www.lasallecounty.org and click the red COVID-19 Vaccine icon on the right side of the page.
There you will find a green "COVID-19 Phase 1B Vaccine Notification
Sign-up" link where you can complete the form.
After completing this form, individuals will be notified by an email from
the LaSalle County Health Department when a clinic has been scheduled.
Please complete the form as soon as possible as clinic plans are being
finalized. The email will contain a link to register for the clinic and
the ability to choose an appointment time. Clinics and appointments will
be based on vaccine availability and are subject to change. Scheduled
appointments are necessary due to social distancing requirements and the
recommended wait time after receiving the vaccine.
Eligible persons for this phase include:
- Individuals over 65 years of age
- Front line WOrkers (fire, law enforcement, 911 workers, security personnel,
- Educators (Pre-K through 12th grade, and child care: teachers, principals,

The LaSalle County Health Department understands the general public has
questions about when it will be their turn to receive the vaccine. Please
note, as vaccine availability increases, vaciation recommendations will
expand to include more groups. The goal is for everyone to be able to
easily get a COVID-19 vaccination as soon as large quantities of vaccine
are available. As vaccine supply increases but remains limited, ACIP,
and the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) will expand the groups
recommended for vaccination.
The LaSalle County Health Department will be diligent in updating the public
regarding the COVID-19 vaccination plan for the county. Please watch for
more information from the LaSalle County Health Department through our website:
