Madison County Health Department announces that their COVID-19 vaccination clinics will expand to the largest number of locations to date during the week. The locations offer varying time options.
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 to get one.
This week, both Pfizer and Janssen vaccine is available on separate days. Pfizer requires two doses at least 21 days apart. Single dose Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine, will be offered at the May 9 and 10 clinics at the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville. A limited amount of Moderna vaccine is available for 2nd doses only by appointment only at the Madison County Health Department. Call (618) 692-8954 ext. 2 if needing the final dose of Moderna.
