DOUGLAS — A city-run coronavirus vaccination site opened this week in the Near South Side, adding another option for adult residents of several South Side neighborhoods to get shots.
Apostolic Faith Church at 3823 S. Indiana Ave. opened this week for vaccinations. It is open 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. It is appointment-only, city officials said.
People can sign up online or call 312-746-4835 to get vaccinated. The shots are free, don’t require insurance and will be administered regardless of a person’s immigration status.
Any eligible adults who live in these ZIP codes can sign up:
The site is using the Pfizer vaccine and is expected to see an average of 250 doses administered per day.
People will need to bring something like a driver’s license, library card, utility bill or voter registration to provide proof of residency in one of the eligible ZIP codes. A full list of accepted documents is here.
Chicago is in Phase 1C of its vaccination schedule, making about 84 percent of adults eligible to get shots. Chicago has sped up its vaccination timeline, with Mayor Lori Lightfoot announcing all Chicago adults will be eligible for the shots starting Monday. Gov. JB Pritzker said Chicagoans who are still ineligible in the city can go to state-run sites in the suburbs.
Staffers from Howard Brown and Community Organized Relief Effort, known as CORE, will run the site.
The city also is running a mass vaccination site at Chicago State University, which is open to residents of the same South Side ZIP codes.
There also is a pop-up vaccination site for Englewood residents that will be open Saturday at Hamilton Park.
