CHICAGO — Drive-thru vaccinations are now available at the Chicago State University mass vaccination site.

People do not need to make appointments to use the drive-thru, which is open noon-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays. It’s closed Sundays. The site is at 9501 S. King Drive.

The drive-thru will use Johnson & Johnson vaccine doses, which means people will only have to get one shot. People must be 18 or older to get that vaccine.

The state also has a walk-in clinic that uses Pfizer doses, meaning people 16 and older can get those shots. People younger than 18 need a parent or guardian.

The shots are free. People do not have to have insurance to get vaccinated and government-issued IDs are not required.
