WATSEKA, IL – The Iroquois County Public Health Department (ICPHD), in partnership with Iroquois 
Memorial Hospital, will be hosting a community-based, COVID-19 vaccination clinic for qualified individuals. 
We are currently scheduling the following:

vaccine is available by appointment only to practice safe social distancing. 
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. 
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:
https://co.iroquois.il.us/offices/health-department. 
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
