Regional Vaccination Site Coming to Patty Turner Center

DEERFIELD – On March 10, the Deerfield Park Board unanimously approved a facility use agreement with Primary & Immediate Care Solutions, LLC, d/b/a Doctors Test Centers (DTC), to bring a regional Covid-19 vaccination site to the Patty Turner Center, 375 Elm Street, Deerfield, IL 60015. The approval comes after weeks of discussion between the Village of Deerfield, the Deerfield Park District, DTC officials, and the Lake County Health Department to find a suitable vaccination partner and location within the Village.

The Lake County Health Department finds DTC qualified to be a mass vaccination provider and they will be eligible to receive weekly vaccination distributions from the County. At this time, there is no hard start date, but vaccinations are expected to begin in late March or early April. DTC will use the Lake County AllVax Portal to book appointments for those who are eligible.

“In the spirit of intergovernmental cooperation, we are very proud to announce that the Board has approved a facility use agreement with Doctors Test Centers to provide a mass Covid-19 vaccination site at the Patty Turner Center. This was only possible through the tireless efforts of Deerfield Park District and the Village of Deerfield staff. We also recognize and thank Mayor Rosenthal and all of our counterparts at the Village for their role and cooperation in providing this tremendous opportunity for our Deerfield community and all of Lake County,” the Deerfield Park District Board announced in a joint statement.

Mayor Rosenthal thanked the Park District Board and all those involved in bringing a mass vaccination site to the Village.

“I am thrilled that we are able to increase vaccine availability right in our own backyard. This will benefit our residents and all of south east Lake County,” Rosenthal said. “Vaccinated or not, please continue to follow CDC guidance for the health and safety of our community.”

Lake County Health Department Executive Director Mark Pfister said public-private partnerships like this will be key in the vaccination rollout.

“As our vaccine allocation grows, we will need regional partners to help get shots into arms.,” Pfister said.

DTC provides Covid-19 tests at numerous locations throughout the region, including O’Hare and Midway airports.

“We are proud of this partnership and look forward to serving the community,” said DTC owner Dr. Jeffrey Weinzweig, MD.

More information about the dedicated vaccination site at the Patty Turner Center will be provided as the logistics are finalized.
