State Sen. DeWitte to host COVID-19 vaccine clinic at Boys & Girls Club of Elgin

Two- shot series to be offered June 26 and July 17

WEST DUNDEE — State Sen. Donald DeWitte (R-St. Charles) is partnering with the Boys & Girls Club of Elgin for a two-shot Pfizer vaccination clinic on June 26 and July 17, according to a news release.

“We want to do everything we can to ensure that every Illinoisan who wants to be vaccinated against COVID-19 has easy access to two shots,” DeWitte stated in the release. “We will have the capability of delivering up to 500 shots at each clinic.”

The Illinois Department of Public Health will be administering the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, which is administered as a two-dose series, three weeks apart. Those who attend the first clinic on June 26 will need to be available to attend the second clinic on July 17.

The first shot clinic is 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 26 at the Boys & Girls Club of Elgin, 355 Dundee Ave. The second clinic is also from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 17 at the same location.

Participants can book an appointment ahead of time by emailing DeWitteVaccine@gmail.com to pre-register. Walk-in vaccinations will also be available, but limited.

“I want to stress that proof of insurance and identification is not required to receive these vaccinations,” DeWitte stated. “This clinic is open to all Illinoisans ages 12 and older.”

While anyone ages 12 and older is eligible for a vaccine, parents will be required to sign a consent form for those under the age of 18.

For additional information about this clinic, please contact Sen. DeWitte’s district office at 847-214-8245 or send an email to DeWitteVaccine@gmail.com.
