Overview

Flu Shot Clinic

Due to COVID-19 precautions and in accordance with the CDC and local public health authorities, Health Services will be available by appointment only for the 2020-2021 academic year. We are unable to offer walk-in services at this time.

Nurses are available for phone consultation Monday through Friday 8:30am-4:00 pm by calling The Center for Health & Counseling Services at (815) 836-5455 and all visitors to the Center must call before arriving.

Nurse and doctor visits will be available by appointment following CDC guidelines to determine what types of visits can be offered. Consultation with a campus nurse will determine if an appointment is necessary, and if so will be scheduled.

We will continue to provide over-the-counter medications at no charge, upon request. Because we do not have walk-in services, please call to speak with a nurse to request over-the-counter medications. Arrangements to provide the requested medications will be made.

We have provided a COVID-19 Information and Resources page that will have up-to-date information, so please review that section for helpful information about COVID-19.
