***General Tips- basic approach on how to get a vaccine ***

  1. Hospital Systems: Start by checking where you are a patient (various hospital links) (even if all you had done was an xray, you most likely have a portal).  Set up portal, find the area where you make appointments, and try to make one for covid 19 vaccine!
  2. Pharmacies and Clinics:
  1. Midnight is a good time to check many places.
  2. (Most Reliable) CVS Tends to open spots….like clockwork. Type another state first on the first screen (ie KY) and THEN IL when it asks again - although lately not needing to do this as more appointments are opening.  Still figuring out what sites to put in - can try Waukegan, Northbrook, Oak Park produced random locations.  Try various sites.  4/2 CVS opened it’s J&J vaccine slots all at midnight with the others.
  3. Also at midnight -- Physicians Immed Care has been releasing RIGHT at mid. BEFORE mid: Click on the reserve button in the location you want, have form at bottom filled before then. Search bar open! Click fast!
  4. Sam’s Club has started to release at midnight also.
  1. Walmart sometimes has some midnight (Niles, Cicero, Northlake and Glen Ellyn tend to be open then)
  2. Walgreens has been dumping BIG numbers of appointments, but at random times (has not been as reliable for me!).

Advocate Aurora Health System

**GOOD to TRY**

  1. Many sites now have DIRECT LINKS (See “Start Here” section)
  2. Log into your Advocate Aurora account 
  3. If you are a patient you can download the app Live Well to your phone and schedule from there. Or just go to your Portal
  4. If you are NOT a patient with Advocate, then you can create an account by going to this link:

  1. Once you are logged in, go to the top and click “schedule appointment”
  2. Option for “schedule covid 19 vaccine” will appear if you meet criteria
  3. If you are unable to create an account, or are a patient and do not see the link, and are having trouble, please call: 866-443-2584

Cook County Registration for Vaccine

CCDPH Website

**GOOD to TRY**

  1. Before NOON (or when appts released) : Pre-register at and get a registration code (you may have one if you registered before - check your email for an email from
  2. Any IL resident can use this site now - opened to any ELIGIBLE resident (Cook county eligibility)
  3. BEFORE the time that they open appointments:
  1. Go to the link and sign in using your unique registration code
  1. At NOON:  Continue to refresh the page and try to grab an appointment.  Need to be fast to be able to confirm it.  May have open spots for several hours. Keep refreshing….may take a few hours.
  2. Other option is to call: 1833-308-1988.  May take a while to get through, but once you do, you most likely will get an appointment.  If busy, keep trying. .
  3. This line is god for 2nd appointments also that you can’t find other places.

Any IL resident  in 1A, 1B, 1B+ and higher education staff, government workers and media.

March 29th: Add: Rest staff, const trade workers and religious leaders


**GOOD to TRY**

  1. Tend to drop new appointments at midnight .
  3. Also you may need to first click a different state that has appointments (Kentucky seems to work well!), and then the next time it asks, put in IL.
  4. Then answer screening questions.
  5. Question: Select location to be vaccinated - NOW you can put in Illinois - Other (unless you want Chicago)
  6. Answer questions about eligibility.
  7. Then put in zip code/city/state right before midnight.  
  8. Wait until it is exactly midnight, and then hit search.
  9. Once you click a time, it saves it for 30 min as you put in the info.
  10. CVS stores that have been stocking J and J tend to be:  Bensenville, Canton, Dekalb, Kewanee, Lemont, Waukegan, and Wheaton (they go fast btw, so need to be ready if that is all you want)


1A, 1B who live OR work there.

All Else:

1A, 1B, 1B+ who live or work in IL

Innovative Health Care (no appts at this time)

Will typically announce on their facebook page a few minutes before they release.

(3/23 7:24 pm)  If you have had a first dose of vaccine at Innovative health care, you will need to change your location for your 2nd dose.  Email here or call 312-746-4835 (need the code sent)

1A/1B only


Need to set up an account with Instavaxx - Click on Register and put in information first.

  1. Instavaxx does community events, but their main location for appointments is “Halsted”.  
  2. Register then when on vaccine appt page, first choose vaccine (on left hand side).  For now, they primarily have Pfizer.
  3. Then choose location on right - Halsted
  4. It will show if any dates available with vaccine, otherwise, will ask if you want to be on waitlist.
  5. Mark yes, as they will email you when spots available again.

Loyola University

**GOOD to TRY**

Do not need to be a patient, set up a patient account, they release several times a week.

  1. Call 708 216 8300, press option 1
  2. They will help you set up a patient portal (can only call for one patient at a time)
  3. Best to call earlier in the morning - 7am is a good time, but random times have worked as well
  4. May be on hold for a LONG time, but once portal set up, can then check back daily for appointments
  5. Appointments tend to get released at midnight

1A/1B only


  • MIDC is opening up a new location at Benedictine University
