As a provider, we are required to follow this model. Vaccine availability is based on supply and we cannot guarantee a date of release for the general public at this time.  If you are a Health Care Worker and employed in DeWitt or Piatt County, your facility has remained in consistent contact with the health department and will begin administration once the vaccine has been delivered.
