Schedule a COVID-19 Vaccination

Rush has been working with local and city officials to begin delivering the COVID-19 vaccine to our community, following the guidelines outlined by the Chicago and Illinois Departments of Public Health. Based on those guidelines, eligible people will include those 65 years of age or older and essential workers, including health care workers. Review the Chicago Department of Public Health’s phase 1b guidelines here.

We apologize for the inconvenience. There are currently no self-scheduling COVID-19 vaccine appointments available on this website or by phone — and we do not accept walk-ins. Please check back again soon as we are updating our inventory regularly. We are doing everything we can to make the COVID-19 vaccine available to those who need it most. For more information about the vaccine, please visit
