Currently, Favia Primary Care does not have the COVID 19 vaccine to offer to our patients. If you are interested in receiving the vaccine, we recommend checking with your local health department for information on how to obtain the vaccine but please note that per the McHenry County Health Department, they are following the Advisory Committee of Immunization Practices (ACIP) and CDC’s recommendation.
Phase 1a: Health Care Personnel and Long-Term Care Facility Residents
Phase 1b: Essential Frontline workers
Phase 1c: Adults with high-risk medical conditions and adults 65 years old and older
Phase 2: Workers in industries and occupations important to the functioning of society and people with moderate comorbid conditions
Phase 3: Young adults aged 18-30. A pediatric vaccine is pending at this time.
Because vaccine supply will be limited it may take a few months before the vaccine can be provided to the next prioritized group.
We will notify you when we are able to provide the vaccine at our office.
