We vaccinated about 333 individuals today, primarily their 2nd doses at the Fischer and one of our onsite workplace clinics.  Today was our last clinic day at the Fischer.  We wanted to thank Jason Rome and the Fischer Theatre Staff and Volunteers for their generous use of their theater.  And as always, we are extremely thankful for the Illinois National Guard!!  We have about 1 more month that they be here!  Please continue to spread the word about all the clinics in Vermilion County!!

Anyone wanting to sign for our upcoming clinics can go to our website:  www.vchd.org<http://www.vchd.org> , or they can call 217-431-2662 ext. 263 or 264.

We will begin to head to areas to reach out to our more rural areas and our harder to reach populations with our Johnson and Johnson allocation.  Here are some of the locations we will be headed to the end of the month, beginning of May.
