Memorial Physician Services Expands COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility
Members of the public who qualify for the COVID-19 vaccination under Sangamon County Public Health guidelines can now schedule appointments from Memorial Physician Services.
The self-scheduler is available at vaccination.mhsil.com. The vaccinations will be administered at Memorial Drive-thru Lab, 2950 S. Sixth St., Springfield.
Patients must be 16 or older to receive the Pfizer vaccine, or must be 18 or older to receive the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines. The types of vaccines available will be shown along with available appointments.
“We are pleased state and county public health guidance now allows us to offer COVID-19 vaccines to any adults,” said Jay Roszhart, president of Memorial Health System’s Ambulatory Group. “Studies have shown that these vaccines are highly effective at protecting people from COVID-19, and we encourage the public to take advantage of this opportunity.”
Individuals do not need to be current patients of Memorial Physician Services or Memorial Health System affiliates to make an appointment.
