Community-Based Testing Site in Aurora Now Offers COVID-19 Vaccinations

The community COVID-19 testing site on Farnsworth Avenue near the Premium Outlet Mall in Aurora is now administering COVID-19 vaccinations.

The Outlet Mall site is one of five of the state’s 10 Community Based Testing Sites that now offer the COVID-19 vaccine to patients age 12 and older.

All three vaccines are available during operating hours. No appointment or doctor referral is needed at state operated sites, and all services are offered at no cost to the individual.

“With this latest wave of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, overwhelmingly caused by the Delta variant, we continue to work to expand access to both COVID-19 testing and vaccination,” said IDPH Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike. “Testing is crucial for identifying new cases to reduce the spread of the virus, and the COVID-19 vaccine is our clearest path to ending this pandemic.”
