11-4-21 COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments Available for Ages 5+

The Peoria City/County Health Department is now taking COVID-19 vaccine walk-ins for ages 5+ and all adult doses and boosters. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

On October 29, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded the emergency use authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. On November 2, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended children ages 5-11 receive the vaccine, which the Illinois Department of Public Health adopted the next day.

Walk-ins are still welcome for ages 12+ at the Peoria City/County Health Department, Monday-Friday, 8:30 am-4 pm.  

The Peoria City/County Health Department is located at 2116 N Sheridan Road, Peoria, IL. 


COVID-19 booster shots are available without an appointment at the Peoria City/County Health Department, Monday-Friday, from 8:30 am-4 pm.

The CDC recommends the same product that was used for the primary vaccination should be used for the booster, although boosting with a single dose of any authorized COVID-19 vaccine booster is acceptable (called "mix and match").

Individuals age 18+ who received Johnson & Johnson at least two months ago are eligible to receive a booster dose. Individuals 18+ who completed their two-dose series of Pfizer and Moderna must have completed their series at least six months ago.
