CHICAGO — The United Center will switch to using the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for walk-in appointments come April 20.

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires only one shot, and there’s been high demand for that vaccine from residents, according to a Mayor’s Office news release. People can make appointments to get the shot at the site online or by calling 312-746-4835.

People must be at least 18 to get a shot at the United Center; otherwise, anyone of that age is eligible for a spot at the site. The vaccinations are free regardless of a person’s insurance.
