WATSEKA, IL – The Iroquois County Public Health Department (ICPHD), in partnership with Iroquois
Memorial Hospital, will be hosting community-based COVID-19 vaccination clinics for qualifying
Iroquois County residents.


At this time, all appointments for the COVID-19 vaccination clinic on February 4
th, 2021 have been filled. We will notify the public when more vaccine is available.


For those who have an appointment, 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.
ICPHD is expecting to receive weekly or bi-weekly allocations of the COVID-19 vaccine from the State
of Illinois. If you were unable to schedule an appointment for this community-based clinic, please
watch for future notification of upcoming clinics as more vaccine becomes available.
As more vaccine is allocated ICPHD will communicate availability, along with when, where, and how to
receive the vaccine, via traditional and social media outlets as well as on the ICPHD website:
