Latest News


The Macoupin County Public Health Department has created a survey for individuals who want to be registered as interested in receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. This is the first step in the process – completing this survey DOES NOT guarantee you will receive a vaccine through MCPHD. Our ability to provide vaccines to the public solely depends upon how much vaccine we receive, when we receive it, and which groups we are instructed to vaccinate in which order.

Key points:

- This survey is a means of registering your interest in receiving the vaccine.

- Completion of the survey does not guarantee receipt of the vaccine.

- If you have already received a consent form and checklist from MCPHD through your employer or organization, DO NOT COMPLETE THIS SURVEY.

- Be prepared to give your contact information on the survey, including name, address, phone number, date of birth, and email address.

- MCPHD’s COVID19 Command Center team is available at 217-313-5078 to assist individuals with completing the survey.

- Before completing the survey, we urge you to view the Moderna vaccine fact sheet and the Pfizer vaccine fact sheet which can both be found on their respective websites.
