HSHS Medical Group has COVID vaccine appointments available in Springfield. Vaccines are designated for persons who live or work in Sangamon County and are in Phase 1A, 1B, and 1B plus.
For a COVID vaccine appointment, the public can sign up for our online patient portal called MyChart. It is free and easy to create an HSHS MyChart account at www.hshsmyhealthrecord.com. Once you are registered in MyChart, you will answer a series of questions to determine if you are currently eligible to receive a COVID vaccine. If you are eligible, you may select an appointment time. COVID vaccines are being administered at HSHS Medical Group COVID Drive-Thru Clinic, located in Scheels’ parking lot at 1118 Legacy Pointe Drive in Springfield, Illinois.
The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) defines Group 1A as health care personnel; long-term care facility staff and residents; and other identified congregate care staff and residents. Group 1B includes persons age 65 or older and frontline essential workers. Group 1B plus includes persons 18 and older with certain underlying conditions (such as cancer, diabetes, heart conditions, smoking, obesity, pregnancy) and persons with a disability. For more information on these groups, visit the IDPH website at https://www.dph.illinois.gov/covid19/vaccine-faq.
For those not yet eligible to receive the vaccine, we encourage the public to sign up for MyChart where they can receive updates on when and if we have doses of the vaccine available to their group.
