Lake County helping seniors get vaccines
Additional volunteers are in place to help Lake County senior citizens get help and vaccine information over the phone. The Lake County Health Department provides support for COVID-19 vaccine registration through its AllVax Support Center. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at (847) 377-8130 and by email at AllVax@lakecountyil.gov. Special hours for seniors 65 and over are from noon to 3 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays and 6 to 8 p.m. Thursdays. During those hours, seniors can select option 1 to be routed to a volunteer to help them register and answer questions about the process. Voicemails will be returned. Volunteers at the call center cannot schedule or expedite appointments. Anyone who wants to volunteer should contact email@example.com.
