Mobile Vaccine Delivery Assurance Program

The State of Illinois is seeking to partner with well-established and experienced private sector third-party immunization providers with existing mobile models to administer COVID-19 vaccine provided by the State and to serve on the forefront of the COVID-19 mass vaccination campaign. The purpose of this RFP is to:

  • Build a robust vaccine administration network across the State of Illinois;
  • Create vaccine access points in geographic areas and communities that are medically underserved;
  • Promote uptake of vaccine by Illinois residents; and
  • Achieve high vaccine coverage rates across the State in accord with established prioritization strategies.

The State is seeking vendor proposals to assist with COVID-19 vaccine immunization services delivered within local communities throughout the State of Illinois, excluding the City of Chicago. The vendor shall have the ability to serve target populations in urban and rural areas. IDPH will direct the vendor to serve various congregate facility settings (such as independent living/senior housing, group homes and jails), and will identify geographies for the vendor to conduct open points of vaccine dispensing in community settings (such as community centers, churches and schools).
