We’re now vaccinating eligible Springfield Clinic patients. You must see a Springfield Clinic physician (primary or specialty care) to qualify. No walk-ins available; appointments are required to receive your COVID-19 vaccine. All vaccine appointments are held at Springfield Clinic’s West Side Drive-up Lab located at 3040 Hamlin Parkway in Springfield.

Springfield Clinic is committed to administering the COVID-19 vaccine to our patients in the safest, most efficient way possible. New appointment times will be added to the schedule daily as vaccine supplies are made available to us. We understand this process can feel both frustrating and overwhelming as you wait to secure a spot. Your patience and understanding will be a key part of the vaccine rollout. Check back regularly for more information on eligible vaccine groups and open appointment times.

I see a specialty care provider with Springfield Clinic, but my primary care doctor is not with Springfield Clinic. Do I qualify?

Yes. Any patient of a Springfield Clinic physician who sees a primary care doctor or specialist is eligible for a vaccine appointment.

I don’t live in Sangamon county. Can I still get the COVID-19 vaccine at Springfield Clinic’s West Side Drive-up Lab?

You can get your vaccine at Springfield Clinic’s West Side Drive-Up Lab if you are a Springfield Clinic patient and have booked an appointment or are referred by your Springfield Clinic provider, regardless of your address. 

I booked my appointment. When should I expect a follow-up call from Springfield Clinic?

A Springfield Clinic representative will reach out to you 48 hours prior to your appointment to confirm your appointment details, complete the required CDC screening and answer any questions. 

Can I choose which vaccine dose I am getting?

Springfield Clinic will distribute all three of the vaccines, Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson, as they become available to us. If you wish to receive a specific vaccine, we will do our best to accommodate you. However, it will likely mean a longer waiting period as we can’t control what type of vaccine shipments we receive.

Will my second appointment automatically be scheduled based on the timing of my first?

You will receive the details of your second appointment, if necessary, when you are called to confirm the first.

If I receive my COVID-19 vaccine through Springfield Clinic, will this be covered by insurance? Will I receive a bill?

Springfield Clinic will bill the vaccine administration to insurance. Based on our understanding of federal regulations, insurance plans should not hold the patient responsible for any co-payment or co-insurance. Please call a customer service representative (CSR) at 217.528.7541 if you have question about your bill.

Our fees are standard by CPT code (a standardized code that represents a procedure or service), not subject to different fees based on insurance coverage.
