At this time all vaccination appointments are full through February 1, based on our current supply of the vaccine. If more vaccine becomes available, we will, of course, schedule more vaccinations. We are not offering a waiting list because a waiting list of thousands of people would be impractical to administer. We anticipate that other vaccination operations will be available with our medical partners (Memorial Medical Center, HSHS St John's, Springfield Clinic and SIU School of Medicine) and through other venues in the not too distant future.

It’s Thyroid Awareness Month! Your thyroid produces thyroid hormone, which controls many activities in your body, including how fast you burn calories and how fast your heart beats. Diseases of the thyroid cause it to make either too much or too little of the hormone. Symptoms of thyroid problems may include fatigue, restlessness, weight loss or weight gain. Women are more likely than men to have thyroid diseases, especially right after pregnancy and after menopause. Find out more at: https://www.womenshealth.gov/a-z-topics/thyroid-disease
