Pritzker tours Rockford COVID-19 vaccination site as Illinois sets single-day record with 75,000 doses given

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker announced Friday, during tour a Winnebago County coronavirus vaccination site at Auburn School Field House, that the state set a single day record on Thursday, administering nearly 75,000 COVID-19 vaccine doses in a single day.

The Governor briefly toured the vaccination site at 11:30 a.m.

“Auburn High School is today serving as a mobile vaccination site for hundreds of staff at Rockford Public Schools,” Pritzker said. “Getting them back in schools and keeping kids safe is a high priority for me.”

Pritzker said Illinois is the 6th state in the nation to surpass a million administered doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

“There is hope ahead,” he continued. “Just yesterday the FDA announced a date on the calendar later this month for potential approval of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine… A one dose vaccine that makes it easier to administer, without a second appointment. We hope to see this vaccine in the pipeline in not too many weeks from now. In the meantime, we need to be patient.”

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) today reported 3,660 new confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Illinois, including 83 additional deaths.
