Additional COVID-19 vaccines available this week

SIU faculty, staff and students can receive the first or second dose of the Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines at clinics at Banterra Center and the Carbondale Civic Center this week. The Jackson County Health Department has clinics today through Thursday, April 12-15, at both locations.

This is an excellent opportunity for SIU students to get the vaccine prior to the end of the semester and returning home. Vaccines are available to any Illinois resident age 16 and older, including in-state and out-of-state SIU students. Students should bring their SIU ID cards.

For more information, visit the Jackson County Health Department website or call 618-684-3143.

The health department is responsible for vaccinations. The university is collaborating with and assisting local health agencies.
