SOUTH HOLLAND, IL–The South Suburban College COVID-19 testing site has scaled back its operation from seven days a week to five days a week in response to slowing demand for testing. Testing will continue on Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. through April as part of its most recent intergovernmental agreement renewal with the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). No appointment is necessary for the drive-thru tents set up at the College’s Main Campus parking lot. Testing site inquiries may be made by calling (888) 297-7208.
Vaccinations continue Mondays through Saturdays from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. at Cook County’s mass vaccination site within South Suburban College’s Gymnasium. Vaccinations at all Cook County Health sites are provided by appointment at vaccine.cookcountyil.gov. Individuals without Internet access or who need assistance scheduling may call (833) 308-1988 (from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday – Friday). Cook County Health will continue to offer appointment slots based on the amount of vaccine expected and will add appointments as new vaccine shipments arrive. As vaccine becomes available, Cook County Health opens new appointments. South Suburban College cannot answer specific questions regarding testing results or vaccination scheduling.
In addition to Cook County Health sites, the Cook County Department of Public Health has distributed vaccines to more than 90 partner locations including Jewel-Osco, Mariano’s, Walgreens, Federally Qualified Health Centers and hospitals who are also offering vaccines by appointment.
