Jackson, Franklin and Williamson Counties Offer Expanded COVID Vaccination Plans


The Jackson County Health Department is offering appointments for administering the COVID-19 vaccine during Phase 1B of the state's plan.

This includes those 65 and older as well as frontline workers. The department estimates around 12,000 people in Jackson County are eligible under this phase.
The online appointment portal is available on the Jackson County Health Department website. Those who have trouble making an appointment online can call 618-684-3143.

The shots will be given at mass vaccination clinics at Banterra Center on the SIU-Carbondale campus every Tuesday and Thursday while supplies last.

Clinic appointments from now through February 4 are currently open. Other dates will be available in the coming week.

Vaccination updates are being posted to the Jackson County Health Department website every Friday.

In an effort to accelerate the administering the COVID-19 vaccine, the Franklin-Williamson Bi-County Health Department is offering vaccination clinics in the community starting on Friday.

Shots for those eligible in Phases 1A and 1B will be given at the Pavilion in Marion on January 15, 20, 21, 26 and 27 and at the VF Factory Outlet Store in West Frankfort on January 28. Additional clinics will be scheduled in the coming weeks.
