COVID-19 Vaccines At Grundy County Health Department

Grundy County Health Department will begin to offer COVID-19 vaccines through our office every Thursday, starting on July 15th.

The Health Department is located in the Grundy Administration Building at 1320 Union Street, Morris.

To schedule an appointment you will need to call our office at (815) 941-3404. We will be offering the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson vaccines as inventory allows.

While the vaccine remains available at no cost, the Health Department will begin charging an administration fee for each vaccine given. This administration fee of $23 will be billed to the client’s health insurance company. Insurance companies are prohibited from “balance billing” clients and the administration fee will be waived for residents without health insurance, thereby relieving all residents of any financial responsibility. At no time will there be any personal out of pocket costs to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
