600COVID Vaccine Clinic for persons age 75 and up 1

CHAMPAIGN – After much anticipation, Champaign County residents over the age of 75 will have the opportunity to receive a COVID-19 vaccine at two community-based clinics, and State Senator Scott Bennett (D-Champaign) urges those eligible to reserve their slot.

“I’m proud of the tireless efforts and commitment that our local health officials and the University of Illinois have put forth to understand and combat COVID-19,” Bennett said. “The establishment of these two vaccination sites puts our community on a path toward defeating this virus.”

The Champaign-Urbana Public Health District, in partnership with Carle Health, OSF HealthCare, Christie Clinic, Promise Healthcare, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign will hold vaccination clinics Tuesday, Jan. 12 through Thursday, Jan. 14 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. by appointment only. Appointments are available at either community location, regardless of where you receive medical care.

To register for a vaccination at the former Dress Barn store in the Kohl’s Plaza, register online through MyCarle by logging in or signing up at MyCarle.com. Patients can also register by calling 217-902-6100.

To register for a vaccination at the iHotel and Conference Center located at 1900 S. First St. in Champaign, register online here or call 217-239-7877. The entrance for the clinic will be through the east wing of the iHotel and Conference Center.

If you do not feel well the day of your appointment, please call to reschedule.

The two clinics provide an easy and accessible entrance and protection from the elements while accommodating the necessary social distancing. Patients will need to wear a face covering and plan to allow at least 15 minutes for observation after the vaccination. Health officials ask patients to limit the number of individuals in your party that are not receiving the vaccine and to wear clothing to allow easy access to the upper portion of the arm for the injection.

The vaccination is free, but providers may charge an administrative fee, which is determined by an individual’s insurance coverage. If you have questions about whether to expect an out-of-pocket cost, call the number on the back of your insurance card.
