Attendees of Glencoe’s popular Thursday farmers market will have the chance to receive more than just fresh produce and artisan goods.
The Illinois Department of Public Health will host two COVID-19 vaccine clinics at the market, according to information from the village of Glencoe.
Officials will be administering first and second doses of the Pfizer vaccine on Thursday, July 15, and on Thursday, Aug. 5, respectively.
IDPH officials are expecting that the pop-up clinics will serve 50 individuals.
The Glencoe Farmers Market runs from 3-6 p.m. and is held on Wyman Green in the downtown area.
