Carle to offer Moderna and Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 booster vaccines to community

Carle will begin offering the Johnson & Johnson and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine booster doses to qualifying individuals beginning Saturday, Oct. 30. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) expanded the use of a booster dose for these COVID-19 vaccines in eligible populations.

 

Carle will offer booster options throughout the clinical service area.

 

Champaign County: The vaccine clinic at Kohl’s Plaza in Champaign will begin administering the Moderna booster Saturday, Oct. 30, in addition to the currently approved Pfizer booster.

 

Vermilion County: Patients in Vermilion County can schedule an appointment at a Danville clinic - J&J boosters will be available on Tuesday and Thursday; Moderna boosters will be available on Wednesday and Friday. All Carle booster clinic appointments can be scheduled through MyCarle or on Carle.org.

 

McLean and Woodford Counties: Patients in McLean and Woodford counties are encouraged to contact their Primary Care provider to schedule an appointment. Johnson & Johnson will be made more readily available in more targeted opportunities throughout the service area. Patients in McLean County can also call (309) 268-5200 to schedule an appointment.

 

Richland County: Patients in Richland county are encouraged to contact their Primary Care provider to schedule an appointment.

 

“We are excited to offer these booster vaccinations to qualifying patients in order to ensure the best protection against COVID-19,” Robert Healy, MD, chief quality officer said. “We have seen success in administering the current approved Pfizer booster and continue to follow CDC guidance as we work to limit the spread of infection in our communities.”

 

The Moderna booster is available 6 months after completion of the primary series for patients:

·        Aged 65 and older

·        Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings

·        Age 18+ who work or live in high risk setting

·        Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions

 

The Johnson & Johnson booster is available at least 2 months after completion of the single-dose vaccine for those 18 years of age and older, without limitation.

 

Those wishing to schedule their appointment can do so through their MyCarle account and on Carle.org.

 

“As we move into the colder months and gatherings start moving indoors, it’s incredibly important to make sure you are maximizing your protection against COVID-19,” Dr. Healy said. “With cold and flu season approaching, I want to encourage everyone to take all the necessary steps to keep yourself and your loved ones healthy and limit the spread of the virus.”

 

The CDC has also recommended that each of the available COVID-19 vaccines can be used as 'mix and match' doses in eligible individuals following the completion of primary vaccination series with a different available COVID-19 vaccine.

 

As the most researched medical offering in history, the COVID-19 vaccine has proven to be safe and effective. It is important for everyone to get vaccinated to limit the spread of infection and reduce the opportunity for the COVID-19 virus to mutate in the future.

 

Carle is collaborating with local public health departments throughout the region to ensure everyone who qualifies for a booster vaccine has access. Booster recipients should bring their COVID-19 vaccine card to appointments if possible.

Vermilion County New Case Counts

Today’s Reported Cases:  We had 247 new cases and 208 were released.  Of the 247 new cases, 1 was vaccinated.  We currently have 14 people hospitalized.  Zero cases were breakthrough cases and zero reinfections.  Many of these cases came from our Surge Center and we don’t get their reports until after they have been released from isolation.  They are contact traced fully by the surge center and then considered an add and release by the time we report them.  This is why it appears that we have a huge number to report this go round.  The surge center usually only handles adults unless part of a household, so teens and younger are usually handled by our local contact tracers.

We do have an additional death to report, a gentlewoman in her 40s.  Our thoughts go out to her family and friends.  This brings our total deaths to 196.

60 cases – Under the age of 20
149 cases – Ages 20-49

ICPHD honors October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The Iroquois County Public Health Department (ICPHD) encourages individuals to have appropriate cancer screenings regularly. Self-screening for breast cancer includes breast self-exams to monitor for lumps, discharge, or other changes in skin or breast tissue. Individuals should work with a healthcare provider to have screenings including clinical exams and mammography. 
ICPHD partners with the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program (IBCCP) to promote breast and cervical cancer screenings and treatments. IBCCP provides free breast and cervical screenings for uninsured individuals between the ages of 21-64 

 

 Individuals may also qualify for assistance if: 
• They are over the ages of 64 and do not qualify for Medicare, have no insurance, are 
underinsured, or have a high deductible
• They have health insurance that doesn’t cover screenings or has a high deductible
• Younger individuals with symptoms or that are considered high risk
• Individuals already diagnosed with breast or cervical cancer may also receive free or low-cost treatment through this program 


To learn more about the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program, call the Iroquois County Public Health Department at (815) 432-2483.

A former Hoopeston man sent to IDOC for Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault

On October 19, 2021, Richard Ingram, formerly of Hoopeston, Illinois, pleaded guilty to

Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault, a Class X Felony. Ingram was sentenced to serve fourteen (14) years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. Ingram must serve 85% of his sentence and register as a sex offender for life. Ingram, after his sentence in prison, will serve a period of mandatory supervised release (i. e. parole) to be determined by Illinois Department of Correction between three (3) years to natural life.

During the plea, Circuit Judge Charles Hall heard evidence that Ingram was the paramour to the nine (9) year old victim's mother. The victim's mother entrusted Ingram to watch the victim while she was dying in 2019 and unable to care for her child. Ingram took advantage of the victim while he was in a position of trust and authority, and touched the sex organ of the victim in the summer of 2019.

"Sexual predators who prey on the children of Vermilion County will not be tolerated and my office will do everything in our power to ensure that such despicable transgressors are brought to justice and that our children are kept safe. We are grateful for the victim's bravery in this case and his cooperation with the investigation." Jacqueline Lacy, State's Attorney
