IDPH COVID-19 Vaccine Delivery Assurance Program RFP

The State of Illinois is seeking to partner with well-established commercial pharmacies to administer COVID-19 vaccine provided by the State and to serve on the forefront of the COVID-19 mass vaccination campaign.

The State is seeking vendor proposals to assist with COVID-19 vaccine immunization services delivered within local communities throughout the State of Illinois. The immunization of Illinois residents with a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine is a critical component of the strategy to reduce COVID-19 related illness, hospitalizations, and deaths and to help restore societal functioning. The success of Illinois’ COVID-19 mass vaccination activities rely also on the organization, task management and data collection of the planning and operations efforts.  Adherence to timelines, budgets and data integrity are key. 

The State is soliciting proposals from private sector pharmacies that have an existing model for providing end-to-end management of the COVID-19 vaccination process throughout the State, excluding the City of Chicago.
