Ferrell Hospital Offering Moderna Vaccine at Friday’s Walk-in COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic in Eldorado

ELDORADO – Ferrell Hospital in Eldorado says the walk-in COVID-19 vaccine clinic set for Friday at College Heights Baptist Church in Eldorado will take place as scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

However, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will not be offered as previously planned. Instead the number of Moderna vaccines will be increased by 180 doses, and patients will schedule appointments for their second dose due approximately four weeks later.

The clinic ending time is approximated as vaccine supplies may be used up prior to 3 p.m.

No appointment is needed for this clinic. Anyone 18 and older who lives or works in Illinois will be eligible for the vaccine.
