Health Department Clarifies Vaccine Eligibility for Parent Caregivers, Disabled Persons

The Kane County Health Department issued a clarification regarding COVID-19 vaccine eligibility for caregivers and disabled persons under 65.

Parent caregivers of developmentally disabled Kane County residents have moved into the top priority category and can receive COVID-19 vaccines. The state of Illinois moved caregivers to priority group 1A last month.

While caregivers have moved to 1A, developmentally disabled persons under the age of 65 remain in priority category 1C, according to the direction from the Illinois Department of Public Health.

Caregivers are asked to take Parent Caregiver Survey. The survey may be accessed by clicking this link.

Completion of this survey will provide information to community medical providers who are assisting with vaccinating eligible caregivers.

The public is advised to continue to take precautions. Wear a mask, wash your hands and maintain your social distance. Avoid social gatherings and get tested if you think you have been exposed.

To sign up for email updates on the COVID-19 situation, visit the KCHD website at KaneHealth.com or call the Health Department at 630-208-3801.
