Less Vaccine Available
Similar to DuPage County, the Will County Health Department reported they would likely have very few first dose vaccine appointments over the next three weeks due to shorter supply. For this reason, the health department will be focusing on second doses during this time. During these three weeks, the health department expects to receive 6,000 to 10,000 doses of vaccine each week. The department said the vaccine shortage has made them unable to open more vaccination clinics next week, but did not have to cancel appointments.
