CHICAGO — The city will reopen a mass vaccination site Monday at Malcolm X College.

The site will be open 1-7 p.m. Monday-Friday and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturdays at the school, 1900 W. Jackson Blvd., according to a health department news release. Pfizer doses will be available there.

The site — which was used at the beginning of vaccinations before closing — is reopening as the United Center mass vaccination site stops offering shots.

The Department of Public Health is also closing other mass vaccination sites as it focuses on smaller and more mobile vaccine events. Vaccinations are now available at certain “L” stops, farmers markets and other spots.

The Chicago State University site is doing walk-ups until July 3. Sites at Kennedy-King College, Daley College and Wilbur Wright College will now offer first Pfizer doses through July 3; after that, it will provide second shots and then close July 24.

City data shows more than 1.29 million Chicagoans — or 48 percent of all residents — have gotten fully vaccinated. About 54.7 percent of all Chicagoans have gotten at least one shot.

COVID-19 vaccinations are free and do not require insurance. 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.
