On-campus vaccine clinic, June 17 
Illinois State University faculty, staff, and students can register for an on-campus vaccine clinic to be held from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Thursday, June 17, at the Legends Room, on the lower level of Redbird Arena. The clinic site can be accessed via the building’s north ramp entrance.  

Both the Moderna (two-dose) and Johnson & Johnson (single dose) vaccines will be available, and participants can make their vaccine choice when they register online. Those who choose the Moderna vaccine will register at the June 17 clinic for a second-dose clinic to be held on July 15.  

Individuals must show their Redbird ID Card upon arrival to the clinic and be an eligible Illinois State University student or employee to receive a vaccine at the on-campus location.   

Students and employees are encouraged to seek additional opportunities for vaccination as additional on-campus clinics are not planned at this time. Learn more about McLean County Health Department (MCHD) and statewide vaccination sites, as well as review a listing of all vaccination sites in Illinois, which includes local pharmacies. While the COVID-19 vaccine is not currently mandated, Illinois State University strongly encourages all eligible members of the campus community—students, faculty, and staff —to get vaccinated to protect themselves and others. 

Illinois’ move to Phase 5 
Governor Pritzker has announced that Illinois will move to Phase 5 on Friday, June 11, given the state’s improving metrics. Under Phase 5, all sectors of the economy reopen, and large gatherings of all sizes can resume. The University continues to follow all public health updates and will make adjustments accordingly to campus operations as a result of updated guidance. More information about Phase 5 can be found online.
