[ARCHIVED] "Destination: Vaccination"

The Cook County Department of Public Health recently launched its “Destination: Vaccination” program, which provides free rides to many vaccination locations throughout suburban Cook County. The program is open to Skokie residents and all suburban Cook County residents, as well as Chicago residents who wish to utilize a Cook County Health location within the city. Vehicles can accommodate most residents, including those in wheelchairs or those who require child seats. This service is provided at no cost.

The program will enable individuals with limited mobility or transportation issues to easily get vaccinated, removing a key barrier for many residents. Residents who need a ride to a vaccination location can call 833-308-1988 to schedule a ride. Though advanced scheduling is preferred, residents can call for a ride and one should arrive between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on time of day and fleet availability.

For Skokie residents, COVID-19 vaccine is also available at Skokie’s Village Hall, 5127 Oakton Street on Wednesdays (Pfizer) from 9:45 am to 12:00 pm and Thursdays (Moderna) from 9:45 am to 12:00 pm. See more information and links to make appointments. 

For info information about vaccines and other upcoming vaccination events please visit the Village’s COVID-19 site, vaccines.gov and/or visit cookcountypublichealth.org or myshotcookcounty.com.
