**At this time, the Livingston County Health Department (LCHD) does not have the COVID vaccine.** On September 11, 2023, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration approved use of a reformulated COVID booster (2023-2024 formula). The LCHD has not yet received shipment of the newly approved vaccine, but will notify the public as soon as it becomes available at our clinic. Please check back for updates.
LCHD vaccination clinics are open to anyone eligible for the vaccine. A legal guardian must accompany all minors. For more information on COVID vaccinations and eligibility, please visit the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) COVID Vaccine webpage.
Daily appointments, including weekends, are available at a number of area pharmacies. To search for COVID vaccination locations in Illinois, including participating pharmacies, please visit the IDPH's COVID Vaccination Location page.
Homebound COVID Vaccination Program
Livingston County is working to reach homebound individuals who are unable to visit COVID vaccination sites.
Please note that LCHD vaccination sites are ADA accessible, and this program is specifically for Livingston County residents who are unable to leave their residence for medical reasons.
To be eligible for this program you must:
- Live in Livingston County and
- Leaving home is not an option for you because doing so requires considerable and taxing effort and
- Be a person with a disability who requires in-home assistance or
- Need adaptive and/or accessible transportation to leave home
If eligible, please contact the LCHD to schedule an appointment for in-home vaccination.
Electronic Proof of Vaccination
Needing a QR for travel or an event? You may acquire electronic proof of your vaccination by using Vax Verify.
The L.C.H.D. does not offer COVID testing. To search for COVID testing in our area, please use the COVID testing search tool. Be sure to contact pharmacies and physicians' offices to confirm testing availability, hours of operation, and types of testing available.
Isolation & Quarantine
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) currently follows CDC's recommended guidance for isolation (i.e. testing positive for COVID) and quarantine (i.e. close contact with person who tests positive for COVID). Release letters for work and travel are also provided through IDPH.
