Southern Seven Health Launches Mobile Pop-up COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Tour

ULLIN – Southern Seven Health Department (S7HD) has announced the launch of a new mobile COVID-19 Vaccine tour throughout the S7 region. These pop-up vaccination events are aimed to reach some of the farthest outlying townships in each of the seven counties.

The mobile pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics will utilize the Illinois Department of Public Health’s Wellness on Wheels (WOW) vans to provide the traveling clinic space to administer the vaccines. Individuals will then be able to wait their required 15-minutes after the vaccine in the comfort of their own car parked nearby. This unique rolling clinic gives people in some of the most rural areas of our counties an opportunity to easily get vaccinated close to home.

S7HD covers Alexander, Hardin, Johnson, Massac, Pope, Pulaski, and Union counties. In addition to taking appointments, S7HD is also accepting walk-ins at each of their daily vaccine clinic locations.

To guarantee a vaccine dose on a given day, people can schedule themselves for a vaccine appointment using the Illinois Department of Public Health’s COVID-19 Vaccine Registration system online at https://covidvaccination.dph.illinois.gov.

Vaccines will be provided only to Illinois residents and/or individuals with proof of employment in Illinois. Everyone over the age of 18 years old is eligible to get vaccinated.
