KANKAKEE – Veterans this weekend will have the chance to be vaccinated for COVID-19 at Hines VA Clinics across Illinois, including the Kankakee County location.

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, there are a limited number of appointments available this Sunday at 581 William R Latham Senior Dr #301 in Bourbonnais.

“This is a two-dose vaccine and Veterans will be expected to return to the same location for their second vaccine.” VA officials said in a press release Thursday. “To schedule a vaccine appointment, VA-enrolled Veterans should call their clinic directly or 708-202-7000.”

Clinics will also be available in Aurora and LaSalle on Saturday and Monday respectively. The clinics are open from 8 am to 5 pm.
