ENGLEWOOD — Free coronavirus shots are available to Englewood residents starting this week as part of a citywide program.
Any resident of the Englewood community area who is 18 or older can get vaccinated. Vaccinations are free and no insurance is required. Shots are available by appointment starting Tuesday. You can call 312-376-7525 or fill out this form to make an appointment.
One Health Englewood is partnering with UI Health for the vaccination site. One Health is scheduling appointments for Englewood residents at UI Health Mile Square Health Center, 641 W. 63rd St.
One Health will offer the shots until March 26, with appointments available 10 a.m.-2:30 p.m. weekdays.
The neighborhood vaccine site is part of the city’s Protect Chicago Plus program, which prioritizes resources — including vaccine doses — for the 15 community areas hit the hardest by COVID-19.
Now that the city has opened vaccinations to more people and started Protect Chicago Plus, more Black and Latino residents are getting the shots. As of mid-February, 41.4 percent of people vaccinated were white, 5.6 percent Asian, 23.6 percent Black and 26.2 percent Latino.
