LaSalle Co. opens COVID-19 vaccination appointments to everyone 16 and older


LA SALLE COUNTY - The LaSalle County Health Department continues to move forward and will expand our clinic availability to include individuals in Phase 2, which focuses on ensuring access to vaccine for all populations 16 years and above. Please note, appointments are still available for those individuals who qualify as Phase 1A, Phase 1B (65 years and older and Frontline Essential Workers) and Phase 1B+ (16-64 years of age with underlying medical conditions).

As the vaccine will be available for all ages 16 and above, the Health Department has transitioned away from utilizing the “COVID Vaccine Notification Sign-up List” we began in early January.  Information regarding upcoming COVID-19 Vaccination Clinics and Appointment Availability will NOW be posted on our website. Please visit and click on the “COVID-19 Vaccine Information” icon. There you will find links to schedule an appointment at an upcoming COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic. Please continue to check the website regularly for appointment availability. Additional dates will be added as more vaccine become available.

To meet the demand of expanded eligibility, the Health Department is planning a large clinic on Friday, April 23 at Illinois Valley Community College from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Appointments are currently available and able to be scheduled for this clinic.
