Grundy County Provides COVID-19 Update
MORRIS, IL – The Grundy County Health Department provides information about vaccination efforts.
The Grundy County Health Department asks for the community’s cooperation and patience in efforts to provide
booster doses to eligible members of the population. Though vaccine is plentiful, personnel to administer vaccine
and assist with clinical efforts is not. Walk-in clinics scheduled through the Administration Building are scheduled
each Friday through November 19th, and the Health Department encourages residents to consider attending on a
date in November. Much interest from the public has been expressed for Friday, October 29th, and our resources
are not abundant enough to accommodate all looking for a vaccine on that date. Long lines outside are expected,
without space to sit down while waiting. The doors to the building will not be open until close to 8:00am, and
space inside of the building is limited.
Walk-in clinics are scheduled for the following dates:
Friday, November 12th
Friday, November 19th
9:00am – 1:00pm
Grundy County Administration Building, 1320 Union Street, Morris
All 3 vaccines available, as supplies last. Doses to be administered include 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and boosters.
Unless obtaining a 1st dose, vaccine record of previous doses administered must be presented
As of October 21, the CDC recommends a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in certain populations. For
individuals who received a Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, the following groups are eligible for a
booster shot at 6 months or more after their initial series:
65 years and older
Age 18+ who live in long-term care settings
Age 18+ who have underlying medical conditions
Age 18+ who work or live in high-risk settings
Booster shots are also recommended for those who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and are 18 and older
and who were vaccinated two or more months ago.
Pediatric doses (children ages 5-11 years) are expected to be authorized and recommended in the coming weeks.
Local providers in Grundy County are communicating to determine a process that makes available vaccine to
interested residents. More information is expected in the coming week.
