The city of Collinsville’s Gateway Convention Center will be the location of Madison County’s Health Department’s vaccine distribution starting Thursday, Jan. 14. Vaccines are being distributed according to the phase distribution plan as outlined by the Illinois Department of Public Health.
“We are pleased to partner with the Madison County Department of Health to offer this important vaccine to city and county residents,” Collinsville City Manager Mitchell Bair said.
All Madison County residents interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine will need to click the link and complete the survey. The survey will help the Madison County Health Department determine the number of vaccines needed for each phase. When the vaccine is available, individuals will be contacted to schedule a vaccination appointment following IDPH guidelines.
“After seeing the devastating impacts to our community, we are hopeful that offering vaccines in this manner to our residents will help us move past this pandemic,” Collinsville Mayor John Miller said. “We look forward to getting our community opened back up fully for business.”
