Marion VA Health Care System & The Southern Illinois Miners to host a Veteran, Spouse and Caregiver COVID-19 vaccine event at Rent One Park

 

The Marion VA Health Care System & The Southern Illinois Miners will host a Janssen Covid-19 Vaccine event on Saturday April 17th starting at 8:00 a.m. Vaccines will be administered at The Diamond Club @ Rent One Park, 1000 Miners Drive Marion, IL 62959. The Miners will also offer a free ticket voucher to a future regular season game to all who participate.

 

This walk-in event is open to the following individuals: Veterans, Spouses & Caregivers

 Veteran Definition: Anyone who served in the U.S. military is eligible to be vaccinated through VA.  No DD-214 required to receive vaccine.

  • Spouse Definition: A spouse includes marriage, same-sex, and common-law marriages. If you characterize your relationship as spousal, you can receive the vaccine. A spouse includes a widow and a widower of a Veteran.  A person stating that they are the spouse of a Veteran and giving the Veteran's name is sufficient to give them a vaccine.
  • Caregiver Definition: For COVID-19 vaccine eligibility, we define a caregiver as a family member or friend who provides care to a Veteran. Caregivers may help the Veteran with personal needs like feeding, bathing, or dressing. They may also help the Veteran with tasks like shopping or transportation.  A person stating that they are the caregiver of a Veteran and giving the Veteran's name is sufficient to give them a vaccine.
