MT. VERNON – SSM Health in southern Illinois recently updated its COVID collection sites to improve the efficiency at each location.
In Mt. Vernon, the collection site will remain at the Express Clinic location on 42nd street, but the collection tent has been moved just north of the building. Patients will enter the collection site between Peoples National Bank Corporate Center and the 42nd Street Plaza Shopping Center.
The location will include new registration pods and larger drive-thru tents.
After completing a virtual visit on ssmhealth.com, patients should present to the registration pod and they will then be directed to the swabbing station.
Hours are Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 8 a.m to noon.
