We continue to be concerned about shipment of doses of vaccine. We don't currently have enough doses between our inventory and expected shipments to vaccinate even second dose patients. We currently provide around 1200 to 1400 doses each week. This week’s scheduled delivery is just 300 doses. We continue to operate under a vaccine shortage situation. As such, we will not be able to load any additional SignUpGenius links for new appointment slots until more vaccine becomes available. An email was sent today to relevant IDPH staff, our legislators, and our county board chairs to urge additional vaccine be sent.
Please stay tuned to our website at www.dewittpiatthealth.com and our Facebook page for additional information.

PLEASE continue to practice our prevention protocol: WASH your hands frequently, WEAR a mask when in public, WATCH your distance (maintain a 6 ft distance), don't attend or host gatherings, and shelter vulnerable populations.
