The topic of Covid-19 vaccinations is a challenging one. It is not yet known when vaccinations will be available for most residents of the Mount Prospect area. Here is what we know so far:
- 1. The Cook County Department of Public is in charge of everything to do with vaccines in our area–how it is distributed, where and to whom.
2. Further information as it becomes available can be found on the department’s website. Other ways to contact the department with questions or concerns are via Twitter #COVID19; by calling the new @CookCoHealth hotline at 708-836-4755 or by emailing the department at CCDPH.COVID19@cookcountyhhs.org.
