The Morgan County Vaccine Planning Team will start taking registration for residents within Morgan County who are 75 years and older for the COVID vaccination. Those who are in group 1a healthcare providers are allowed to register at this time as well.


In order to register, you must call 217-479-1817 weekdays between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm starting January 19. Pre-registration is required to obtain the vaccine. NO ONSITE REGISTRATION will be allowed.
Residents are asked to be patient with the registration process as it takes some time to move through the population.
We will offer registration for the 65 and older community by age groups within the community as more vaccine becomes available.

GOOD NEWS – Prairie Council on Aging had an UN-Senior Day Event!!!

This was our way of getting information out to the seniors of Morgan, Cass, Scott, Greene, and Jersey Counties without gathering due to COVID.

Here is how it worked: Prairie Council advertised on the Resources page here on our website,, and in the newspaper so that seniors could call our sponsors or visit their websites.

Prairie Council is proud to sponsor the Nutrition Programs (Door Bell Diners and Bread of Love), and this year’s proceeds were all restricted giving to feed seniors in need.
