As the state of Illinois looks to continue to boost access to the coronavirus vaccine, state officials announced that rural vaccination teams will now provide walk-in appointments for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in the coming weeks.

According to a press release from Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s office, clinics will begin to offer the shots on a first come, first served basis beginning in Lawrence County on Wednesday. A second event conducted by one of the state’s mobile vaccination teams and members of the Illinois National Guard, is set for Friday in Macon County, according to the release.

“Providing equitable access to the COVID-19 vaccine to communities across Illinois remains a top priority for my administration. Already, 60 percent of residents 18 and over have received their first vaccine dose and the addition of these mobile vaccination sites will help expand access to even more Illinoisans,”Pritzker said in a statement.“I encourage all Illinoisans to take advantage of the many opportunities across the state to get vaccinated as we power through to the other side of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

In six Illinois counties, including Kankakee County, rural vaccination teams will conduct second dose clinics in coming weeks. Those teams will also have a number of single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccines, which will be available on a walk-in basis:
