The Moultrie County Health Department (MCHD) will hold COVID-19 vaccination and booster clinics during the month of December. Individuals may register for an initial vaccine series or a booster. All vaccinations are by appointment only.
The CDC and Illinois Department of Public Health recommend that anyone over the age of 18 be fully vaccinated and receive a booster. Individuals who have initially received Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccinations must wait at least six months from their last injection before receiving a booster. Those who have received a Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine should wait at least two months since their initial vaccination.
Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is the only vaccine currently available for children aged 5-17 years. The December 10th clinic will provide adult and children’s COVID-19 vaccines. All minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. It will be held at the Sullivan American Legion, 8 East Strain, Sullivan.
All other COVID-19 clinics will be held at the Moultrie County Health Department located at 200 S. Main, Sullivan. Please come inside 10 minutes prior to scheduled appointment time to complete paperwork.
For those who received a previous COVID-19 vaccine, please bring your vaccination card. It is also helpful to dress with a short-sleeved shirt so that the arm is accessible to the nurse.
