Pop-up COVID-19 vaccination sites open around Chicago

Coronavirus

CHICAGO — US healthcare experts are expected to recommend COVID-19 boosters for all Americans sometime this week. Last week, the FDA recommended boosters for those with weakened immune systems.

The recommendation for boosters would be about eight months after getting the second vaccine dose.

Pop-up vaccination clinics are open around Chicago for anyone who still wants to get a shot. People in nursing homes, health care workers, teachers and grocery store employees would be first in line to get the boosters —which if approved would likely start sometime in September.

Pfizer has already submitted data to the FDA to get approval for it’s booster shot. Both Johnson & Johnson and Moderna are also working on a plan for boosters.

The goal is, of course, to try and get a handle of the Delta variant that is sweeping the country — especially in places with low vaccination rates.

The Chicago Department of Public Health is offering vaccines and education at pop-ups throughout the city each week, including schools, CTA stops, churches, food pantries, and more.
