City of Chicago Vaccine and Testing Operations Update

February 16, 2021

COVID-19 Joint Information Center

CHICAGO - Due to the winter storm, all vaccination and testing sites operated by the City of Chicago will be closed on Tuesday, February 16. People with scheduled appointments at the City’s sites have been notified of changes and their appointments will be rescheduled.
The inclement weather in the Midwest has also led to a delay of vaccine shipments coming into Chicago over the upcoming days. While there is currently no estimated time of arrival on the orders, we anticipate daily updates from CDC. All COVID shipments are requested as overnight shipping so we expect vaccine shipments and supply with catch up quickly. 
Due to storm impacts, vaccine deliveries from the City’s allocation to vaccine providers will be delayed. People with appointments at private healthcare providers should contact their provider to determine if they can still be vaccinated or their appointment will be rescheduled. 
The City is assessing the overall impact from the storm and will make further decisions regarding testing and vaccine operations on a day-to-day basis.
