Fairfield Memorial Hospital will be offering Johnson and Johnson COVID vaccinations by appointment only on Friday, April 9th, to the public for anyone that falls into the Tier 1A and Tier 1B category, which includes anyone over the age of 18 with chronic health conditions or works in an essential field of work and resides in the State of Illinois. You do not have to be a patient of Horizon Healthcare to receive this vaccination.
Anyone interested in scheduling an appointment with Fairfield Memorial Hospital COVID vaccination program, please call 618-842-2082.
The COVID vaccinations will be administered by appointment only through the Medical Arts Complex in Fairfield so that people receiving the vaccine will have access to restrooms while they wait for their vaccine and during the recommended monitoring period after receiving the vaccine. At the end of the recommended monitoring period, patients will be provided a drink and a snack bag to take home with them. FMH Plant Operations staff will also be offering valet parking and shuttle service in the parking lot to anyone that has trouble with mobility.
It is highly recommended that if you have an epi-pen to bring it with you to your
vaccination appointment. This request is out of an abundance of caution. FMH will
have trained staff on duty in case of a reaction as patient safety is our highest priority.
You should also wear appropriate clothing for receiving the vaccination as there will
not be a way to provide for your privacy. The vaccination is given in the upper part of your arm so long sleeve shirts are not recommended.
Additionally, for your convenience, FMH have posted their screening and consent
forms on our website at https://www.fairfieldmemorial.org/resources/covid-19-
vaccination-forms/ that can be printed off and completed prior to your vaccine
appointment. These forms are also available for pick-up at either the Hospital or the
Medical Arts Complex screening stations. The FMH Medical Arts Complex is located at 213 NW 10th Street in Fairfield, Illinois.
