Updated: February 8, 2022

As the state of Illinois increases resources at local health departments to provide mass vaccinations, we are providing locations in/around the Champaign-Urbana area of places to receive the COVID vaccines and testing. As of late December, Illinois is seeing its highest surge in COVID-19 cases during the entire pandemic. For people having a problem negotiating websites, the Illinois Department of Public Health Vaccine Appointment Call Center hotline is 833.621.1284. The state says it is staffed seven days a week.
