United Center vaccination site closing Thursday


CHICAGO — The mass COVID-19 vaccination site at Chicago’s United Center is wrapping up its operation Thursday.

Since being set-up by FEMA in March, the site has averaged 6,000 shots per day. More than 300,000 Chicagoans were vaccinated in total.

The process of getting people vaccinated continues, but shifts to a smaller scale.

The site will be open Thursday for drive-up service. No appointment is necessary.
