ALTON – The Madison County Health Department provided COVID-19 Vaccinations to 420 residents today in Aton, Ill.

“We are pleased to report that over 1,400 doses of the COVID vaccine will have been administered to seniors and persons with specific health-complications throughout the month of March in Alton at LaMay’s Catering.
