Erie Family Health Centers is partnering with Northwestern Medicine and the City of Chicago through its Protect Chicago Plus initiative to bring the COVID-19 vaccine to residents of the Humboldt Park and Garfield Park neighborhoods. (Read more about Protect Chicago Plus here.) You need an appointment to receive your vaccine.
The vaccine is the best tool we have to keep people from getting sick and dying from COVID-19, safely spend time with our loved ones, and end this pandemic.
These things are true about all of the COVID-19 vaccines being used in the United States:
- The COVID-19 vaccines are completely free and available to everyone- with or without insurance.
- You don't have to be a U.S. citizen to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
- They have been properly tested on thousands of people of all genders, races and ethnicities and have proven to be very safe.
- Side effects are mild and only last a day or two.
These vaccination fairs are only open to residents of the Humboldt Park and Garfield Park neighborhoods in Chicago, age 18 and up. If you need assistance scheduling an appointment please call us: (312) 432-4583
