CHICAGO — The drive-thru at Chicago State University’s mass vaccination clinic has closed, but walk-up shots are still available.

The site’s drive-thru for coronavirus vaccine shots closed after Saturday, the Mayor’s Office announced in a news release.

People can still get walk-up shots at the site, though. The walk-up site is open noon-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays. Appointments are not required.

People can get the two-dose Pfizer vaccine at Chicago State. COVID-19 vaccinations are free and do not require insurance.

Chicago State University was one of the city’s mass vaccination sites, used to get people their shots as the doses became widely available. But vaccinations have slowed down in recent weeks and the city has begun focusing on smaller vaccine events.

Anyone can call the city’s coronavirus hotline at 312-746-4835 to get more information on how and where to get vaccinated in their community.
