Madison County Discontinues Weekend Data Updates

Madison County Health Department (MCHD) announces that they are discontinuing daily data updates on the weekends.  Beginning June 5th, no daily data will be provided on their website, social media, or their Data Dashboard.  They will resume daily data updates on Mondays. The Data Dashboard will be updated on Mondays to include the weekend data.

MCHD continues to offer COVID-19 vaccination opportunities at their Mass Vaccination clinic site at the Gateway Convention Center in Collinsville as well as various community and school locations throughout the county.  These efforts will continue to operate at least through June with the continued support of the Illinois National Guard.

Regardless of where someone lives, works, or attends school, anyone who is 12 and older is eligible to receive the vaccine (12-17 y/o must have a parent/guardian with them and can only receive the Pfizer vaccine) at the Gateway Convention Center Mass Vaccination site or any of the other vaccine clinics. Appointments are preferred but walk-ins are welcome.

The COVID-19 Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine is the only one approved for vaccinations of 12-17 year olds. Minors (12-17 years old) must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Minors do not need an ID or birth certificate; however, the parent or guardian will be asked to show their ID.  The COVID-19 Moderna and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccines are only approved for those who are 18 and older.

A limited amount of Moderna vaccine is available for 2nd doses only by appointment only at the Madison County Health Department.  Call (618) 692-8954 ext. 2 if needing the final dose of Moderna.
