This graph shows the state’s progress in receiving and administering COVID-19 vaccines. The scale on the right is the measure of vaccine doses received. The scale on the left is the measure of doses administered and the seven-day rolling average of administered doses.

This graph shows trends in cases (the dark line) and deaths (the gold bars) in Illinois since the beginning of the year. The two reports are at different scales but show the trajectories in each category. The scale for cases (thousands) is on the right. The scale for deaths (hundreds) is on the left.

This graph shows state hospitalizations (the blue line), the number of people in intensive care units (ICU, the yellow bars) and the number of people on ventilators (green bars) since the beginning of the year.
