Bond County is administering COVID-19 vaccinations to residents several times each week as supply allows. The number of vaccines administered changes daily and can be viewed, along with other vaccine information at the following site: https://www.dph.illinois.gov/covid19/vaccinedata?county=Bond
The health department is providing regular vaccine clinics both onsite and offsite. Persons wishing to be vaccinated can register via the online link located on our website www.bchd.us or our Facebook. As vaccine becomes available, we will schedule appointments and will continue to do so until all persons wishing to be vaccinated have been vaccinated. Vaccine supply is limited, but we are beginning to see more become available. In addition to our clinics, we have partnered with HSHS Holy Family Hospital to expand our ability to provide as many vaccines as possible each week. Our goal is to get vaccines into the arms of county residents as soon as we receive it.
The State of Illinois vaccination plan, along with targeted populations and phases can be viewed here: https://coronavirus.illinois.gov/s/vaccine-plan-overview . Currently, we are working through Phases 1a and 1b, which includes healthcare personnel, long term care and other congregate facilities, persons aged 65 and older and frontline essential workers.
