Chicago is in Phase 1C of the vaccination phase. Chicago continues to vaccinate individuals in all the phases before it. Click here to learn how to get a vaccine appointment. Veterans should also reach out to JBVA here and Union Workers here.
For Homebound Residents that qualify, the city has opened the sign up for home visits.
To be eligible for this program you must live in the City of Chicago and:
Be a senior OR a person with a disability who requires in-home assistance.
OR Have to use adaptive equipment (like a ventilator, crutches, a walker, a wheelchair, etc.) and/or accessible transportation to leave home.
AND Leaving home is not an option for you because doing so requires considerable and taxing effort.
The City of Chicago is currently prioritizing homebound individuals who are 65+(oldest to youngest), who may also have a medical disability or impairment. This prioritization also includes a focus on CCVI communities, which have been overburdened by the COVID-19 pandemic.
There is currently a high demand for the Protect Chicago Homebound program. Each appointment lasts approximately 30 minutes allowing for only a certain number of appointments to be scheduled in a given day. It may be several weeks before they are able to schedule your in-home appointment. As soon as they are able, a member of the Protect Chicago Homebound team will call you to schedule your appointment and answer any additional questions you may have. Protect Chicago Homebound is anticipating vaccinating a significant amount of registered individuals throughout the month of April, with a goal of completing the current homebound registrants by the end of May. Please be patient as they respond to a large number of requests.
If you qualify or know someone who does, please fill out this form.
