Vaccination Updates


Chicago is officially in Phase 1C of the vaccination phase. Chicago continues to vaccinate individuals in phase 1a (healthcare workers and residents and staff of long-term care facilities) and 1b (people age 65+ and prioritized essential worker groups). At other vaccination sites in Chicago, only people in these phases are eligible for vaccination.


The City of Chicago announced that two new mass vaccination sites will open in Chicago on April 5, with the city now in phase 1c of COVID-19 vaccine eligibility. The sites will be located at Chicago State University and the American Airlines Conference Center at Gallagher Way next to Wrigley Field.


Registration for vaccination appointments at both locations will be available on zocdoc.com/vaccine. Appointments will be posted on ZocDoc later this week. Additional appointments will be added daily. All Chicagoans eligible in phase 1a, 1b, or 1c will be able to schedule appointments.

Current eligible zip codes for the United Center are: 60608, 60609, 60619, 60620, 60621, 60623, 60624, 60628, 60629, 60632, 60636, 60639, 60644, 60649, 60651, 60652, and 60653.

You can also use Vaccine Finder to see vaccine providers in your area. This week a story broke about a 13-year-old boy who also is helping residents get appointments through a website he built. Story here.
