WATSEKA, IL – The Iroquois County Public Health Department (ICPHD), in partnership with Iroquois
Memorial Hospital, will be hosting a walk-in, Johnson and Johnson (1 dose) COVID-19 vaccination clinic for
Illinois residents age 18 and older May 6, 2021 from 5 PM to 8 PM.
At this time, there is no cost for the COVID-19 vaccine. Written documentation from the individual’s primary
care physician will not be required.
The vaccination clinic will be held at Iroquois Memorial Hospital. Clients will be asked to enter through the main
entrance located on the north side of the building and are required to bring a valid form of photo ID. Individuals
who are wheelchair bound or in need of additional assistance may enter through the Emergency Room entrance
on the south side of the building. If you do not feel well the day of your appointment or are in isolation or
quarantine, please call ICPHD to reschedule. Patients will need to wear a face covering, practice social distancing,
and plan to allow at least 15 minutes for observation after the vaccination. Please wear clothing to allow easy
access to the upper portion of the arm for the injection.
If you are unable to schedule an appointment for this community-based clinic, please watch for future notification
of upcoming clinics as more vaccine becomes available.
