The Chicago Department of Public Health reported progress toward the goal of having at least 77 percent of all Chicago residents ages 12 and up starting their COVID-19 vaccination series by the end of the year as part of Protect Chicago 77. As of September 27, more than 1.6 million – or 72.9 percent – of Chicagoans age 12+  have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Over the past week:

• Austin, Avalon Park, and Grand Boulevard reached 60 percent in 1st dose vaccine coverage (ages 12+)

• Humboldt Park reached 70 percent in 1st dose vaccine coverage (ages 12+)

• Brighton Park reached 77 percent in 1st dose vaccine coverage (ages 12+)

• East Garfield Park had the biggest increase in 1st dose vaccine coverage (ages 12+)

Protect Chicago 77 is designed to engage people in all of the city’s 77 designated community areas to get vaccinated and encourage others to do so.  Through CDPH’s Protect Chicago At Home program, anyone 12 and over is eligible to be vaccinated in their home and can receive up to $100. COVID-19 vaccination is offered at no cost and insurance or government ID are not required. To learn more, visit or call 312-746-4835.
