Grundy Health Department offering mobile vaccination unit for businesses

Minimum of 50 employees needed for unit to be deployed

MORRIS – The following letter was sent out to local businesses from the Grundy County Chamber of Commerce:

Dear Chamber Members,

As the Grundy County Health Department continues to work to vaccinate our community, it has established a mobile unit with the Illinois National Guard that enables vaccines to be given on site for larger businesses in our community.

In order for the Health Department to deploy its mobile unit, they ask for a minimum of 50 employees to receive the COVID-19 vaccination. The specific manufacturer of vaccination your company will receive will depend on the allocation the Health Department receives from the State that week.

Grundy will continue to follow current guidelines for vaccine administration, which can be found at coronavirus.illinois.gov.

As of the writing of this letter, Grundy will vaccinate all residents and workforce of Grundy, to include anyone 18 years and older.

If your business is located in Grundy County, you have more than 50 interested employees, and you’d like to get employees vaccinated on site, please contact Tania Schwer at tschwer@grundyhealth.com.

In your email, please indicate:

• Business Name:

• Business Address (where vaccine will be administered):

• Primary Contact Name:

• Primary Contact Phone (and extension):

• Primary Contact Email:

• Estimated number of interested employees:

The Health Department will then be in touch with you to learn more about your interest.

If your company does not qualify for an on site mobile unit, your employees still qualify for the vaccine and are encouraged to make an appointment at the Grundy County Mass Vaccination Site located at Shabbona School in Morris.
