The Cook County COVID-19 vaccination center at 7630 Roosevelt Rd., as well as all county-run mass vaccination locations, is now offering shots to walk-ins. Appointments are not required.

Anyone aged 16 or older is eligible to receive the vaccine, according to the Cook County Department of Public Health (CCDPH). Children aged 16 and 17 can only receive the Pfizer vaccine, and they must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive the shot.

More information is available at vaccine.cookcountyil.gov/.

Homebound residents of suburban Cook County are eligible for in-home COVID-19 vaccination through the CCDPH. Vaccination sites operated through the CCDPH are ADA accessible, so the in-home program is for individuals who are unable to leave their homes “because doing so requires considerable and taxing effort,” according to the CCDPH.

Additionally, to be eligible for in-home vaccination you must live in the CCDPH jurisdiction and be a senior or person with a disability requiring in-home assistance or adaptive equipment and/or require accessible transportation to leave your home.

According to the CCDPH, residents of Chicago, Evanston, Oak Park, Skokie and Stickney are not eligible for the in-home vaccination program offered through the CCDPH; they should contact their local health departments for available services.
