Ephraim McDowell Health was selected January 28, 2021 to be a regional vaccination center for administering the Covid-19 vaccine.  Ephraim McDowell will initially have a very limited supply of the vaccine and will begin administering the vaccine in Danville on Tuesday, February 2.  

At this time, vaccines will be available for individuals in Tiers 1A (long-term care facilities, assisted living facilities and healthcare personnel) and Tier 1B (first responders, anyone age 70 or older, and K-12 school personnel).

Anyone who is in Tier 1A or 1B and would like to receive the Covid-19 vaccine should visit www.emhealth.org for the latest information and scheduling information.  Because vaccine supply is limited and demand is great, Ephraim McDowell asks those interested in receiving a vaccine to be patient with the process.

Vaccines will be provided by appointment only on the second floor of the Gilcher Building (Surgery Center, 230 West Main Street in Danville) behind the City Parking Garage.
