Audiologists are included in Phase 1a of the Illinois vaccination plan. Audiologists should complete the vaccine surveys administered by their respective counties of employment or residency to join the vaccine waitlist.
Students in clinical placements are also eligible for the Phase 1a of the vaccine and are encouraged to fill out vaccination surveys. Proof of employment such as a letter from work or work badge and a state-issued license is required. Students should contact their universities for further guidance.
Audiology clinic support staff are essential workers and thus will be included in upcoming phases of the Illinois vaccine distribution plans.
