WEST HUMBOLDT PARK — A city-run vaccination site open to all adult residents of Humboldt Park is coming to a West Humboldt Park warehouse.

The city is opening a vaccination site at 4500 W. Chicago Ave., a Catholic Charities warehouse, in partnership with Erie Family Health Centers, according to city spokesman Andrew Buchanan. Appointments are available beginning Saturday, April 3. To book an appointment, go here.

It’s one of two vaccination sites in Humboldt Park under the city’s Protect Chicago Plus program, part of an effort to immunize people in neighborhoods hit hardest by the pandemic. The other is Mile Square Health Center at 3240 W. Division St., a clinic run by UIC College of Nursing.

As is the case with Mile Square Health Center, the only requirement for residents seeking an appointment at the Erie Family Health site is they must be a Humboldt Park resident. The boundaries as defined by the city stretch from Bloomingdale Trail to the north, Western Avenue to the east, just south of Franklin Boulevard to the south and roughly Kilbourn Avenue to the west.

Residents are asked to provide their address when filling out the registration form, and to bring proof of residency such as a utility bill or a bank statement to their appointment.

The Erie Family Health site is administering first doses April 3-17. Residents will leave their first appointment with a second appointment for their second dose. The city has allocated about 2,800 doses to the site, Buchanan said.

Only residents who live within these boundaries are eligible.

Humboldt Park is one of 15 neighborhoods with city-run vaccination sites open to all adult residents. After it was revealed many more white residents had gotten the vaccine compared to Black and Latino residents, the city launched the Protect Chicago Plus program to get Black and Latino residents vaccinated. Humboldt Park has a large Latino population.

Coronavirus has had a disproportionate impact on Chicago’s Latino community, with 87,921 confirmed cases and 1,704 deaths, according to the most recent city figures.
