The Village of Melrose Park is leading the way with the highest rate of vaccinated residents. 82% of Melrose Park residents have received one vaccination shot. 62% of the residents have received both doses. This is higher than all of suburban Cook County who have one vaccination (61%) and all of its surrounding areas with the possible exception of Oak Park. Due to our significant success, Loyola Hospital is in the process of studying our systematic strategies that the Village initiated which led to more residents getting vaccinated. This information may help other communities increase their vaccination rates.
