The first shipment of coronavirus vaccine arrived in Illinois on Monday. The vaccine, produced by Pfizer, was delivered to the Illinois Strategic National Stockpile (SNS).
The state received approximately 43,000 doses in the first shipment and expects additional shipments in the coming weeks. The vast majority of doses in this shipment will be delivered from the SNS to Regional Hospital Coordination Centers around the state that will serve as pick-up locations for local health departments to begin distribution to healthcare workers in their jurisdictions, with the remaining portion going directly to predetermined local health . . .
