New Trier High School is slated to become a future COVID-19 vaccine site operated through a new partnership forged by the Cook County Department of Public Health and area first responders, officials said this week.

The proposal to use New Trier’s Northfield campus, 7 Happ Road, as a COVID-19 vaccine site was unanimously approved by the school board at a Tuesday night meeting, officials said.

“Cook County Health looks forward to partnering with agencies and organizations to open targeted Points of Distribution (PODs) in Cook County,” Kate Hedlin, a spokeswoman for Cook County Health, said in a Tuesday email.

Officials at New Trier declined to comment on the planned site and deferred all questions to the county. County officials were not immediately available to comment as to when the vaccine site at the high school is expected to open, the anticipated hours of operation or how residents can make an appointment.

According to public records, county health department officials are now making arrangements to use multiple locations throughout suburban Cook County as COVID-19 vaccine sites.

Establishing the COVID-19 vaccine sites “may require the cooperative efforts of the local public health departments, health providers, local law enforcement, fire departments, municipalities, local government entities, school districts, colleges and universities.”

ll expenses related to the establishment and operation of the vaccine site at New Trier will be paid for, “in whole or in part by Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding,” officials said.

The county health department will be responsible for the oversight of all clinical activities at the vaccine site, and will provide the furniture, supplies, medication and equipment needed at the vaccine site, according to public records.
