Please note that this vaccine is available by appointment only to practice safe social distancing.

The vaccination clinic will be held at the Iroquois County Fairgrounds 4H Building located 1390 E 2000 North Road, Watseka, IL 609670. Individuals are required to bring a valid form of photo ID. 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. 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. 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: https://co.iroquois.il.us/offices/health-department.
