Moderna vaccine recipients who received both shots at least six months ago became eligible for a booster and health clinics are offering the booster around Ill.
The Calhoun County Health Department(CCHD) is just one of those clinics who are offering booster shots and the clinic will offer Moderna COVID-19 booster vaccines on Thursday, October 28 from 8:30 – 11:15 and every Monday afternoon in November, both by appointment only.
According to the Illinois Department of Public Health’s webpage, “The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) recently reported 15,131 new confirmed and probable cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Ill, including 183 additional deaths since reporting last Friday, October 15, 2021.
