Family Vaccination Clinics

Family Vaccination Clinics

Last month, federal health officials approved the COVID-19 vaccines for children as young as 6 months old. Vaccines are the reason Chicago has continued to see record-low hospitalizations and deaths due to COVID-19 this spring and summer, despite a recent increase in cases, and we’re very excited that we’re now able to offer that protection to our youngest residents.

Clinical trials found these vaccines to be safe and to protect children against severe illness from COVID-19, and we hope you will continue to protect Chicago by making sure your entire family is up-to-date on their COVID-19 vaccines – including boosters for anyone age 5 and up. Learn more about COVID-19 vaccines at Chicago.gov/COVIDvax.

While CDPH recommends families first reach out to their pediatrician or family medical provider to see if appointments are available, there are also a number of clinics being hosted by the City and its community partners:
