The Hamilton County Health Department has begun reaching out to Phase 1A individuals and organizations with clinic dates at the Wayne County Health Department to receive their COVID-19 vaccinations. Long-term Care and Assisted Living residents and staff will be vaccinated by CVS and Walgreens through a separate program that began December 28th. Details on who qualifies for vaccination under Phase 1A can be found at the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) website: State of Illinois IDPH COVID-19 Vaccination Plan.
If you are in this Phase 1A group and have not received a call, please contact The Hamilton County Health Department 618-643-3522 for clinic dates and times. The county will not be able to move to Phase 1B until IDPH gives the entire state permission to move to Phase 1B collectively.
