Rochelle Community Hospital realizes there are many questions regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccine is being rolled out in phases in Illinois following the guidance of the IDPH. Right now we are in Phase 1a, which vaccinates health care workers, EMTs, other health care professionals and long term care facility residents. The vaccine is not yet available to the general public, in Illinois.

The health department will be notifying county partners as the allocation of vaccine is available to various groups in our community. Please stay informed via online sources, the newspaper or radio as more information is released from the Ogle County Health Department or Rochelle Community Hospital about the vaccine.
