Vaccines are among the most successful and cost-effective public health tools available for preventing disease and death. They not only help protect
individuals, but also help protect entire communities by preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases.

Vaccine preventable diseases are at an all-time low in the U.S. However, these diseases still exist and continued vaccination is necessary to protect
everyone from potential outbreaks.

If you need to request an immunization record, please call 217-285-4407, option 4.
You may choose to have the record faxed to a school (with a  signed consent), to a physician or you may choose to pick them up at the health department.

To find immunization schedules and articles on immunizations go to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention Vaccine Website.

TB – Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis skin testing is done on Monday and Tuesday.  The client will need to return 48-72 hours after being tested for the results to be read.  Failure to do so will result in re-testing.
