Chicago Enters Phase 2 April 19th

CHICAGO – The City of Chicago will move to Phase 2 of COVID-19 vaccine eligibility on April 19, meaning all Chicagoans age 16 or older are eligible to get vaccinated against COVID-19. To date, more than 1 million Chicago residents have received at least one dose of vaccine—nearly half of the City’s adult population.

“Opening vaccine eligibility to all adults in Chicago is another important milestone in our goal of vaccinating everyone, and moving past the pandemic to reopen our city safely,” said Mayor Lori E. Lightfoot. “I encourage everyone to get vaccinated, and everyone who wants a vaccine will receive one, but I want to remind people to be patient in getting an appointment, since our vaccine supply is still very limited.”

Last week, the City received less than 70,000 first doses, enough to vaccinate fewer than 10,000 residents per day. The City has been using all the vaccine it receives quickly and efficiently. Last week, 97% of doses received were distributed to providers, and 90% were administered to patients within a week. Over the course of the rollout about 350,000 non-Chicago residents have been vaccinated in the City, too.

“I am encouraged by our increased vaccination rates, but we also continue to see a slow and persistent increase in COVID-19 case counts, especially among younger Chicagoans,” said Allison Arwady, M.D., Commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health. “As we expand eligibility, we can increase vaccination for younger populations to slow the spread of the virus. Hopefully, our vaccine supply from the federal government will increase. We will continue to quickly use all the doses we receive.”

Anyone 16+ living in the City of Chicago can look for vaccine appointments at Zocdoc.com/vaccine or use the City's COVID-19 Vaccine Finder to identify additional vaccine providers. To book an appointment on Zocdoc, Chicagoans under 18 must have a parent or guardian book vaccine appointments on their behalf. New appointments will be added frequently, and people are encouraged to check back. Only individuals 18 and older will be able to get vaccinated at a City-run vaccination site.

The following pharmacies offer vaccinations and their own scheduling:  Chicago Costco Pharmacies, CVS, Jewel Osco, Mariano’s, and Walgreens. Contact the pharmacy directly about possible appointments.

Residents should also check with their primary care physicians. More than 350 hospitals, health clinics, medical practices, pharmacies and other providers receive vaccine for distribution to local residents.

All City-operated vaccination sites remain limited to individuals 18+. Vaccine appointments at City-run sites can be scheduled using Zocdoc at zocdoc.com/vaccine, or by calling the City’s COVID-19 Help Line at (312) 746-4835. To ensure equitable access to this life-saving vaccine, people who live in high CCVI and undervaccinated zip codes will be prioritized for some of the City's vaccination sites such as United Center and Chicago State University.
