 COVID 19 VACCINE SIGN-UPS

Update:  3/1/2021
  • NEW – PLEASE READ
      • Thank you for your time and efforts in responding to callers about our March COVID clinics at the Fischer, and for adding names to our wait-list.

         We have enough names to fill our appointment books, and are going to stop adding to the wait-list, starting 3/2/2021.  We will add the names we have already received, but will not add any more at this time.

      •  

  • IDPH is requiring that both Race and Ethnicity is indicated for our registration process to ensure that our most vulnerable populations are being seen.  The necessary consent form to be filled out prior to coming to our clinics is below. You can also click here:  Moderna Covid 19 Consent Form   .  Please make sure you read and scroll through all the information as there is another form to be filled out and information you need to have.  If you bring the original form to our clinics, we will have a quick sheet for you to fill out with the necessary demographics.  
  • If you are 65 and older, and a resident of Vermilion County, you may have the opportunity to receive a vaccine through our partner Carle Hoopeston Regional Health Center (CHRHC). CHRHC is hosting clinics at their hospital in Hoopeston and at the Village Mall in Danville. Please do not call your providers office. Check your MyCarle account for scheduling options, or call (217) 902-6100.   
  • OSF HealthCare is offering the COVID-19 Vaccine to patients by appointment only. Patients will receive an invite for their appointment via OSF MyChart, email, or phone. OSF is currently prioritizing patients using age (greater than 65) with additional risk factors to ensure patients most at risk receive the vaccination first.  
  • Please remember that our county gets a limited amount of vaccine each week that is divided between VCHD and our hospitals.  We are working with both Carle and OSF to offer as many vaccine appointments as possible.  
  • If you are coming for your 2nd dose, PLEASE Fill out the below paperwork again and PLEASE bring your vaccine card back with you!
  • NEW – PLEASE, if you have an appointment, please DO NOT come more than 5 minutes before your appointment.  We schedule 30 people per 15 minutes and it can cause congestion if you come to our clinic prior to your scheduled time.  

Vaccine Appointments are currently at the Fischer Theatre.  Please come AT your appointment time. We have made appointments every 15 minutes, so getting to your appointment early will only cause a lot of congestion.    You MUST bring your paperwork with you.  This makes the process go much quicker.  The forms that need to be filled out are below.  PLEASE read the following information to make sure you can receive the vaccine.  *  If you cannot print out the forms, you can come to the health department to pick up the forms or we can mail them to you.  *

Please be patient as Phase 1b includes about 32,000 people in our area. This is going to take a long time to vaccinate our community. We are currently working with our hospitals and other partners to spread out the opportunities for the community to get vaccinated.
