Information for Individuals

The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) and healthcare providers across the city are working to vaccinate Chicagoans as quickly as possible. Vaccine supply is limited. We predict that at the soonest, it is going to take through March for frontline essential workers and those over 65+ to get the vaccine.  

People who are interested in getting updates on vaccine rollout or about when it may be their turn to get vaccinated should sign up for CHI COVID Coach. You can also stay informed on Chicago's vaccination progress and announcements by signing up for the COVID-19 newsletter.

The vaccine will be offered to all Chicagoans who want it as soon as larger quantities become available, at no cost.

When and where to be vaccinated

There are four ways Chicagoans can be vaccinated. Learn about connecting with your provider, pharmacy, employer or Zocdoc. The City of Chicago has developed the infrastructure for vaccine distribution and already distributed over 95 percent of the doses we’ve received!
