(Chicago, IL)  It has been one year since Coronavirus vaccines became available for people in Illinois. The Illinois Department of Public Health says in that time, over 18-million doses of the three available vaccines have been administered, with about 7.6-million Illinois residents considered fully vaccinated. In Lake County, over 63% of the population has received the full doses of the available shots. The County also leads the state in administering shots to the newest eligible group…those ages 5-11. So far, 22.8% of those in that age group in Lake County are considered fully vaccinated.
