CHICAGO — The city has a calendar of events and pop-ups where people can get vaccinated against coronavirus.
The calendar is available online. It is updated weekly. It details dozens of events happening at CTA stops, schools, events and other spots.
The city health department is trying to make it as easy as possible for Chicagoans to get their COVID-19 vaccine if they haven’t yet, according to a news release. The calendar will allow people to see how they can get shots in their neighborhoods.
Officials have closed down mass vaccination sites and tried to ramp up vaccinations directly in neighborhoods, hoping that bringing the shots to people will boost Chicago’s slumping vaccine numbers.
The vaccines are free and do not require insurance or an ID. Everyone 12 and older is eligible to get vaccinated.
Chicagoans can also get vaccinated at home for free. Sign up online at Chicago.gov/athome or by calling 312-746-4835.
