WOOD RIVER, Illinois – Residents of Madison County now have two additional options for scheduling a COVID vaccination appointment.
Earlier this year, the Madison County Department of Health released a survey to get people to pre-register for a vaccination. With the investigation complete, the county has launched an online appointment planner and opened a special hotline for qualified people who want the vaccine.
Toni Corona, director of the county’s health department, said having both the website and the phone number ensures that residents have a fair way to make an appointment.
You can access the online planner at Madison County Department of Health website or call 618-650-8445 to make an appointment.
People who already took the survey in January don’t need to use the online planner or call the hotline, Corona said. They are already in the system and the health service will contact them when it is their turn to receive the vaccine.
As of February 3, 16,242 doses were administered in the county.
More appointments will be added as the county receives additional doses of the vaccine. Based on the number of people who want to get vaccinated, it will take months to plan everyone out, Corona said.
