If you are part of Group Phase 1a and are still wanting to receive your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, please contact the Marion County Health Department by the end of Thursday, January 14,
2021, business day. The health department is determining the need of another Group Phase 1A clinic. As soon as the Marion County Health Department is done vaccinating Group Phase 1A, we will be able to move on to vaccinating Group Phase 1B.

According to the State of Illinois’ Vaccination Plan (Version 4.0), Group Phase 1A consists of the following: Healthcare workers (hospital and non-hospital), such as doctors, nurses, nursing assistants, respiratory techs, pharmacists, EMS (including fire departments staff acting as EMS), x-ray techs, phlebotomists, public health nurses, dentists, dental hygienists, morticians, home health nurses, school nurses, optometrist, dermatologists, dialysis staff, urgent care workers, COVID testing staff, physical/occupational/speech therapists, vaccine clinic workers, group home/residential staff, home aide/caregivers, hospice and palliative care staff.

The Marion County Health Department is using the Moderna vaccine. According to CDC, if you are on a daily aspirin regimen, prescribed blood thinner, or have a blood disorder then you must have a Doctor’s order to receive the Moderna vaccine.

If you belong in Group Phase 1A and would like to register for your first dose, please call the health department at 618/548-3878.
