The Egyptian Health Department is partnering with the Illinois National Guard to host a 700 single dose Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccination clinic today (Monday April 12) at the Floral Hall in Carmi from 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM. All Illinois Residents 18+ will be eligible to receive this vaccine. Walk-ins welcome!


No appointment will be needed for the next Ferrell Hospital COVID-19 vaccine clinic, planned for this Friday, April 16. The walk-in clinic will be held at College Heights Baptist Church, located at 2321 Illinois Avenue in Eldorado.


Two different vaccines will be offered at different times. From 9 AM – noon, 175 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be given. From 1 PM – 3 PM, 80 doses of Moderna will be given, and patients will schedule appointments for their second dose, due approximately 4 weeks later.
