Dear Loyolans,

We are excited to share that all students will be eligible to register for COVID-19 vaccine appointments in Illinois starting tomorrow, Monday, April 12! We encourage you to schedule an appointment for your vaccination.

Below are important details on timing and eligibility:

  • Starting on Monday, April 12, Illinois residents age 16 or older will be eligible to make an appointment for a vaccine outside of Chicago.
  • If you live in Chicago and are age 16 or older, you are welcome to travel outside Chicago to receive a vaccine in Illinois or Indiana.
  • If you live in Chicago and you want to get a vaccine in Chicago, the Chicago Department of Public Health plans to open appointments to Chicagoans age 16 or older starting on Monday, April 19.

Below are some general resources on the vaccine and finding appointments:

Again, we encourage all Loyolans to make an appointment and receive the vaccine as soon as you are eligible. We know that scheduling an appointment takes patience and perseverance; we also know the vaccine will help protect your health and the health of the entire Loyola University Chicago community.

Even if you have received a vaccine, please continue to comply with on-campus COVID-19 testing, wear a mask, and practice physical distancing. If you have questions, please email COVID-19support@LUC.edu.

Stay well, and thank you for doing your part to keep yourself and our community healthy.

University Preparedness Planning

Loyola University Chicago's emergency response, planning, and decision making which began back in February 2020, has evolved as the pandemic unfolded and is on-going. Our top priority remains Health & Safety, followed by academic continuity (teaching, research and learning) and student recruitment & retention. The emergency response organizational chart depicts our current organization structure. This will continue to evolve—expanding and contracting as needed by our response. There are now nearly 250 faculty, staff and students working daily on our emergency response and planning for a return to the “next normal” of University Operations. Learn more

Reporting Protocol

Loyola's Emergency Response Management team has been working to develop protocols in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines that help ensure the health and safety of our community. Given the rising number of COVID-19 cases across our country, students, faculty, and staff who have tested positive for COVID-19 must report their case to the University as soon as possible. If you have tested positive for the virus, please contact us at COVID-19report@LUC.edu or by calling 773-508-7707.  More Information »
