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 Iroquois County 
residents. We are currently scheduling for Tuesday, March 30, 2021.
To register and schedule your appointment, please call ICPHD at (815) 432-2483. Please note that this vaccine 
is available by appointment only to practice safe social distancing. Individuals who arrive without a 
previously scheduled appointment will not be eligible to receive the vaccine at that time. Appointments are 
reserved for qualifying individuals who reside within Iroquois County. 
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.
Supply of this vaccine is limited and appointments are expected to be filled quickly. ICPHD is expecting to 
receive weekly or bi-weekly allocations of the COVID-19 vaccine from the State of Illinois. 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. 
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: 
http://www.co.iroquois.il.us/health-department/covid-19-corona-virus/.
The Illinois Department of Public Health has compiled a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions about 
the COVID-19 vaccination. Information can be found at: http://dph.illinois.gov/covid19/vaccine-faq. For 
individual concerns regarding allergies or other medical conditions please consult your own medial provider.
