COVID-19

COVID-19 Vaccine Information

The COVID-19 vaccine will be distributed by Cook County Health Department to partnered locations (for example, Jewel-Osco pharmacy and selected hospitals) for administration and not through the Village of Wheeling. Cook County estimates they will be moving to the next group, 1B, by February 2021. Currently, Cook County is not generating a waiting list; however, there is a registration/survey for the COVID-19 vaccine for Cook County residents and businesses/organizations within the county, excluding Chicago. Cook County will contact you when your group is eligible for the vaccine.

Day 2 Vaccination Dose -Schaumburg Convention Center - 1551 Thoreau Drive N, Schaumburg, IL 60173
Wednesday, April 7 from 9am to 5pm

The Village of Wheeling would like to remind participants that if they received a first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine at the March 17 mass vaccination event at the Schaumburg Convention Center, they are expected to come back to receive their second dose of the vaccine on Wednesday, April 7 at the convention center.

Participants’ appointments for their second shot are at the same time they received their first shot on March 17. There is no need to register again to receive the second shot. This clinic is only for individuals who received their first vaccine shot on March 17 at the Schaumburg Convention Center.

What to Bring:
CDC Vaccine Card that was provided on March 17
Completed Consent Form
Valid ID (driver’s license or State ID card)
Medical/prescription insurance card

If you fail to bring these items to show proof of receiving the first vaccine shot on March 17 at the Schaumburg Convention Center, you may be turned away. Please remember to have these items with you during check-in. Although consent forms will be available onsite for those who are unable to bring them, having all the necessary items will ensure individuals will move through the process quickly to reduce wait times.

Please wear a short-sleeved shirt or other clothing that will allow easy access to the upper arm for the vaccination, as no private changing areas will be available.

This event is being offered in partnership with Jewel-Osco and the member communities of JEMS (the Northwest Central Joint Emergency Management System), Arlington Heights, Buffalo Grove, Elk Grove Village, Hoffman Estates, Inverness, Mount Prospect, Palatine, Rolling Meadows, Schaumburg, Streamwood, and Wheeling.
