The McHenry County Department of Health has announced that it is no longer offering COVID-19 vaccines at its McHenry clinic, but will continue to offer COVID-19 testing.

The COVID-19 clinic, located at 1900 North Richmond Road in McHenry, opened in February.

The site officially ended COVID-19 vaccinations on Saturday, according to the McHenry County Health Department.

The site, which is operated by Curative, will remain open to continue offering COVID-19 tests.

“The vaccine is widely available throughout McHenry County,” the health department said in a statement.

Those looking to find a location offering COVID-19 vaccinations can visit Vaccines.gov.

“The immunity caused by the virus infection is limited in its protection against COVID-19. A recent study suggests that you are twice as likely to be re-infected if you are not vaccinated, ”said Dr. Laura Buthod, MD, medical advisor.

“Vaccines are a safe and effective way to prevent infections and reduce the risk of serious illness from COVID-19, so protect yourself and those you love by getting vaccinated,” Buthod said.

Those needing help registering for the vaccine are urged to call the McHenry County Health Department COVID-19 call center at 815-334-4045.

Residents of McHenry County who need assistance getting to their immunization appointment can call the call center to be connected to transportation services.
