Madison County Health Department announces its COVID-19 vaccination clinics will expand to the largest number of locations to date.  There will be five locations with varying time options to help make getting the vaccine easy and accessible.

Appointments are preferred to help with planning, but walk-ins are welcome. The need was identified to add smaller vaccine clinic locations throughout the county. They have been well-received and helpful for people wanting the vaccine but unable to travel far.   

This week, both the Pfizer and Janssen vaccines are available on separate days. Pfizer requires two doses at least 21 days apart. The single-dose Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine will be offered at the May 9-10 clinics at the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville. A limited amount of Moderna vaccine is available for second doses only by appointment only at the Madison County Health Department.  Call (618) 692-8954, ext. 2, if needing the final dose of Moderna.
