As is well known by now, the biggest obstacles for widespread COVID-19 vaccination are access and distribution. Agudath Israel of Illinois has been working with their local government in to ensure access to the Covid-19 vaccine is available for the community, and is pleased to report that the Chicago Public Health Department and the Cook County Department of Public Health have committed to providing enough vaccines to inoculate 3,000 people. These vaccines are intended serve private school employees, the elderly, and the most vulnerable members of the community.

In order to distribute the vaccine as efficiently as possible, Agudath Israel has teamed up with Hatzalah Chicago and Refuah 311 to form the Community Vaccine Alliance. The Community Vaccine Alliance has already sent out a survey to all of their schools and community members to determine who is eligible to receive the vaccine.

If you are an eligible member of the community click here to fill out the survey.
