SOUTH HOLLAND, Ill. (February 16, 2021) – The Village of South Holland and Thornton Township are partnering to help local residents register for the COVID-19 vaccine. This is for individuals who do not have access to a computer or the Internet, and are in need of a way to register. It does not ensure that a registrant will get a better appointment time than those who sign up from home; it is simply a service to assist those without access to online registration.
Registration assistance runs from 8:00 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday from February 16-24 at the South Holland Community Center, located at 501 E 170th Street in South Holland. No appointment is needed.
Participants must be 65 years or older, or be a frontline essential worker eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine in Phase 1B. Participants must bring ID and wear a mask. Social distancing methods will be in place.
The Village of South Holland communications office has set up a phone hotline giving the above information for those who may have questions. The hotline number is (708) 362-5403.
- The township will NOT be administering the vaccine, simply assisting with vaccine registration.
- The South Holland Community Center remains closed to the public. Only those coming for vaccine registration will be permitted to enter.
