BUFFALO GROVE – To encourage residents to get vaccinated against COVID-19 while they shop, State Senator Adriane Johnson (D-Buffalo Grove) is sponsoring a free vaccination clinic during the 12th Annual Vernon Township Community Garage Sale this Saturday.

The clinic is cosponsored by the Lake County Health Department, Doctors Test Centers and Vernon Township.

“The Community Garage Sale regularly brings out hundreds of residents to support the Vernon Township Food Pantry,” Johnson said. “This free clinic will give attendees another quick and easy way to help out their community: getting vaccinated.”

The clinic will be held Saturday, June 26, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Vernon Township Community Services Building, located at 2900 N. Main St. in Buffalo Grove. Residents age 12 and up can get vaccinated at the event, but young adults age 12-17 will need a parent or guardian present. Everyone who gets vaccinated will also receive a free one-day pass to Six Flags Great America.

All vaccinations are free, regardless of insurance or citizenship status.

The Vernon Township Community Garage Sale, which is open June 26 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., takes place at the Prairie View Metra Station, just blocks from the clinic. The event benefits the Vernon Township Food Pantry.

Those interested in receiving a vaccine at the June 26 clinic can register online at, but walk-ins are also welcome.
