After discussions with IDPH late last 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).  We will only be vaccinating SECOND-DOSE recipients through March to enable vaccine supplies to re-stock. 

 

We have not received any shipments of the new Johnson and Johnson single-dose vaccine.  It is anticipated that quantities will be quite small until the summer.  We don't know at this time if or when we will receive this vaccine.

 

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!
