COVID Vaccine Update/ 3rd shot/Booster

Vaccination is the best way for bringing an end to the Pandemic and getting us back to a normal state of daily function.  During the Fall, McKinley will continue to vaccinate weekly through September, Tuesday through Friday, at CRCE. Each week, the self-scheduling for the following week at CRCE will open on Thursday of the week prior. After September, we will be at the Immunization and Travel Clinic (ITC), located on the first floor of McKinley.  At ITC we will plan two vaccination days per week and more as demand may require.  The Moderna and Pfizer vaccines will be the primary vaccine offered and these vaccines will alternate each week as demand dictates.

To self-schedule a vaccination, students go to your MyMcKinley portal and follow the instructions listed.  If you have difficulty or need further assistance, give us a call at (217)333-2700.  Remember to be compliant with your saliva test upon arrival for your appointment, or you will not be allowed access to the building. Vaccinations are only available to eligible students.You may also visit the Vaccines.gov - Search for COVID-19 vaccine locations and will see other locations nearby offering other vaccine opportunities.

Get vaccinated and enjoy a full college experience!

3rd Shot vaccinations are also available for students who qualify and may be scheduled in the same manner.  The 3rd shot must be the same vaccine as was given as the primary series and must be at least 4 weeks following the second shot of either Moderna or Pfizer. Current criteria for a 3rd shot require self-attestation of meeting one or more criteria. Please review those criteria at COVID-19 Vaccines for Moderately to Severely Immunocompromised People | CDC.

Booster shots are possibly to be available in late October. This will be a completely new vaccine and will likely be intended for all people eight months following the primary vaccination series. McKinley will announce information about the Booster shots as more information becomes available.
