[February 19, 2021]  The Logan County Department of Public Health (LCDPH) recognizes the COVID-19 vaccine as a critical tool to safely reach the other side of this pandemic. Through efficient and effective distribution of the vaccine, we can suppress the spread of the virus, save as many lives as possible, and rebuild our economy.

The vaccine is being distributed, using a phased approach in order to reach critical populations per the vaccination administration plan created by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).

LCDPH has been receiving allotments of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine from IDPH. The Moderna vaccine requires two doses. The second dose must take place approximately 28 days after the first dose in order to reach up to 95.6% protection from COVID-19.

Phase 1A distribution is complete in Logan County. Phase 1A includes hospitals, non-hospital healthcare, long-term care facilities and other congregate care sites. This week, eligible individuals in Phase 1B have also received access to the vaccine including first responders and education personnel.

As the state continues to provide Logan County allotments of the COVID-19 vaccine, Phase 1B distribution will continue to individuals age 65 and above and essential workers listed in Phase 1B (food and agriculture, manufacturing, corrections workers and inmates, United States Postal Service workers, public transit workers, grocery store workers and shelters/adult day care).

LCDPH is holding “by appointment only” COVID-19 vaccine clinics for individuals who work or live in Logan County and can show proof of eligibility for Phase 1A or Phase 1B. To check your eligibility, visit https://www.dph.illinois.gov/covid19/
