ROCK ISLAND Co., Illinois (KWQC) - Moderna vaccinations are coming to Jewel-Osco stores in Rock Island County.

Per a statement from Rock Island County Health Department, starting on Monday, January 18th the pharmacy will begin offering sign-ups to healthcare professionals in the county to receive their Covid-19 vaccinations through a partnership with RICHD. The vaccines will have no out-of-pocket cost.
