We hold COVID-19 vaccination clinics every Monday and Thursday at our Hillsboro office, located at 11191 Illinois Route 185. Clinic hours are 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. These are walk-in clinics, but if curbside service is needed it is available. Just call the Health Department when you arrive and say that you are there for a shot and you would like to stay in your vehicle. For any questions please call the Health Department Monday through Friday, 8am to 4pm, at 217-532-2001.

Pre-registration is NOT required at these clinics and all three vaccines are available, Moderna, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson. Bring your insurance card if you have one. If you don't, it's no problem.
