HOW TO GET THE VACCINE
Vaccines are free across the city.  Below are the points of contact available for scheduling your vaccine appointment.  We recommend starting by calling your primary care provider and then working your way down this list to secure an appointment:

  • City Sites
    • City sites are vaccinating 12 and up, and you can register on ZocDoc or at these registration sites: United Center, Wright College, Apostolic Faith Church, Daley Center, Chicago State University.  Wrigley Field is also administering vaccines to those 12 years old and up, and individuals can register using ZocDoc.  Individuals under the age of 18 will need a parent with them in person to provide consent at every city site except Wrigley, where consent can be given over the phone or in person.  You can also register for these sites by calling 312-746-4835.
  • Healthcare Providers
    • The vast majority of people getting the vaccine will get them through their healthcare provider.
  • Pharmacies
  • ZocDoc
    • The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) and ZocDoc are partnering to provide a new scheduling platform that will aggregate all available appointments throughout the city. Using ZocDoc, you will be able to see nearby vaccination locations and view real-time appointment availability. You will also receive notifications when new appointments are available. Use the ZocDoc here.
  • Home Visits
    • Homebound Individuals can receive a vaccine at home.  Paramedics with the Chicago Fire Department are making home visits to administer the vaccine for individuals in the following categories:
      • a senior OR a person with a disability that requires in-home assistance, and
      • a person who has to use adaptive equipment (like a ventilator, wheelchair, etc.) and/or accessible transportation to leave home.
