After discussions with IDPH late this week, we should be receiving additional shipments of second-dose vaccine beginning early next week. We believe we will have enough second-dose vaccine coming to get us through the month of March.  When we can be assured that we will have enough 1st and 2nd dose vaccine available, we will load a new SignUpGenius link on our website and Facebook page (hopefully around mid-March).

Please stay tuned to our website at www.dewittpiatthealth.com and our Facebook page for additional information.


Additional vaccination information is located here: https://www.dph.illinois.gov/covid19/vaccine-faq and  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/faq.html


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. 


Thank you!
