Homebound Livingston County residents can get vaccination at home

Health department taking appointments for residents unable to go out for medical reasons

The Livingston County Health Department is working to reach homebound individuals who are unable to visit COVID-19 vaccination sites.

While all LCHD vaccination sites are ADA accessible, this program is specifically intended for Livingston County residents who are unable to leave their residence for medical reasons.

Eligibility for the program includes:

  • Residency in Livingston County — and leaving home is not an option because doing so requires considerable and taxing effort — and a person with a disability who requires in-home assistance or need adaptive and/or accessible transportation to leave home.

For eligible residents, a form is available on LCHD’s website to notify the health department of interest: https://lchd.us/site/covid-19-vaccination/. Once completed, the LCHD will reach the individual directly to schedule an in-home vaccination appointment. Those with limited access to technology may reach out to the LCHD directly at 815-844-7174, ext. 210.

Community members should remain vigilant in the fight against COVID-19 by wearing masks and maintaining social distance, staying home when ill, and choosing to be vaccinated, the health department said.
