Grundy Chosen as a Mass Vaccination Site
Grundy County has been selected as a mass vaccination site by the State of Illinois. The site is managed by the Grundy County Health Department with support from the Illinois National Guard and contractual providers.
The site is located at the former Shabbona School in Morris and is operational up to six days a week, by appointment only, to those persons eligible in the current phases. Priority is given to those residents and members of the Grundy workforce who submitted an interest survey and are awaiting an appointment time.
The site is intended to expedite the delivery and administration of vaccine to local residents and then be available as a regional mass vaccination site. Click here for the most recent press release and visit the health department for more information.
Last week on ABC7's "Built To Last" segment featured a great program about the importance of nuclear power provided by Dresden and Byron stations and included comments by Grundy County community leaders. "Built to Last" is an informative series of half-hour specials exploring the skill, training, and artistry of trade union members and contractors. To watch the 30-minute show click here.
