Immunization Clinics Limited
To make certain we are doing our part to practice social distancing, but continue to provide needed vaccines to the most vulnerable, we have adjusted how we operate our immunization clinics. We are limiting vaccine clinics to provide flu vaccines, vaccines to infants, and those behind on their immunization schedule. We are unable to serve you if you are ill or bring along someone who is ill. Please continue to call 815-334-4500 to schedule or reschedule appointments.
Welcome to our website!
Every time we eat in a restaurant, register our pets, build a well or septic system, need help for health care, or vaccinate our children, the Health Department is involved to make us safer and healthier. In addition to Environmental Health permits and inspections, Animal Control and Vital Records, we offer a variety of clinic services:
- TB control
- Chronic and Communicable disease control
- Hearing and vision screening for children
- STD/HIV testing and counseling
