“What we didn’t anticipate was that they would be checking in first thing in the morning. I anticipate from here on out anytime anyone gets a first dose, they can use that code to make the second dose appointment,” said Michael Isaacson with the Kane County Health Department
Thursday was the first time patients could schedule a second dose at the site on Randall Road.
