IL DEPARTMENT ON AGING RESPONSE

This is a rapidly evolving process, but we at IL Department on Aging (Aging) are committed to keeping you informed of the latest information related to vaccination in Illinois, and encourage you to check IDoA’s COVID-19 Vaccine webpage which has up-to-date information, videos, and helpful links meant to dispel myths and rumors about the vaccine and promote vaccine distribution. Please feel free to share the graphic below as well as the information found on our Aging page with our older Illinoisans. Aging also encourages you to check the IDPH COVID-19 Vaccine website regularly for the most up to date information and guidance.

As the distribute the COVID-19 vaccine begins, there’s no doubt scammers are already scheming, leaving our older Illinoisans as unsuspecting prey. Aging asks for your help in making sure our older adults know that Medicare covers the COVID-19 vaccine, so there will be no cost to them. If you come across a COVID-19 vaccine scam, or hear that one of our older adults has been a victim, immediately report it to the Attorney General’s Consumer Fraud Hotline at (800) 386-5438, the Federal Trade Commission, or call (800) MEDICARE. Additionally, some common misconceptions are:

  • You can’t pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine.
  • You can’t pay to get early access to a vaccine.
  • You can’t pay to receive doses of the vaccine in the mail.
