COVID Vaccines

THE FALL 2023 COVID VACCINE HAS BEEN RECEIVED THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT.

The easiest way to get your COVID vaccine is to get it at the same location you get your seasonal flu shot. We suggest checking with local pharmacies and your doctor's office.

  • Walgreens
  • CVS
  • Heartland Health Services: Call (309) 680-7600
  • Local doctor offices may also have vaccines once more widely available. Please check with your provider.

You may also check the National Provider Database for location information: https://www.vaccines.gov/.

If you have not received a COVID-19 vaccine in the past 2 months, the CDC recommends you get an updated COVID-19 vaccine to protect yourself this fall and winter. The Fall 2023 COVID vaccine is approved for everyone 6 months and older.
