McHenry mass vaccination site operation shifts to Curative beginning June 8

Press Release From the McHenry County Department of Health:

The McHenry County Department of Health (MCDH) is proud to announce that it has partnered with Curative, a COVID-19 healthcare service, which will begin to oversee the operations of the McHenry COVID-19 mass vaccination site beginning Tuesday, June 8. 

The McHenry vaccination site, located at 1900 N. Richmond Road in McHenry, will operate from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. Vaccinations are free, but those with medical insurance will be asked to provide information when scheduling an appointment. Persons without insurance will not be denied their vaccination.

Walk-in vaccinations at the McHenry vaccination site will continue to be an option, but appointments are preferred. There are no residency requirements to get a vaccination, but photo identification is required.

The links to register for either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine are available on the MCDH’s COVID-19 Vaccine Locations page

Appointments for clinics managed by MCDH staff will remain available through the State of Illinois COVID-19 vaccine registration system, https://covidvaccination.dph.illinois.gov/. Appointments at the McHenry site will no longer appear on the State’s registration system.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Curative to support mass vaccination efforts in McHenry County. We’ve had huge successes in getting our residents vaccinated, and this opportunity helps us streamline the day-to-day operations of the McHenry clinic now that demand for the vaccine has slowed,” said MCDH Public Health Administrator Melissa Adamson.

Additional pop-up vaccination clinics are held in McHenry County through community-based organizations and pharmacies. McHenry County residents are encouraged to explore their vaccination options and take the first available appointment.
