48th Ward Alderman Harry Osterman, in partnership with Jewel-Osco, is hosting a COVID-19 Vaccination event at the Broadway Armory, Tuesday, April 6, 9am – 5pm. This event will be by appointment only, for people who live or work in the 48th Ward. We are prioritizing seniors and essential workers with these appointments. All individuals in Phases 1a, 1b, and 1c are eligible for appointments, click here to more information on which phase you are eligible for. There is no charge for the vaccination.

When making your appointment, you will automatically be registered for a second dose appointment at the same time in exactly three weeks, on Tuesday, April 27, at the Broadway Armory, 5917 N. Broadway. We cannot guarantee a second dose if you are not available both days.

Visit our new COVID-19 Vaccine Resources page to find information about vaccine updates, eligibility, and vaccination sites.

If you or a loved one are having trouble accessing an appointment online for a COVID-19 vaccine, our office is working with volunteers who can assist in this process. Please call our 48th Ward COVID Line at 224-698-7507 or email 48thwardcovid@gmail.com and leave the name, phone number, and address of the person in need of assistance. We will have a volunteer follow up to see how they can assist. Please note, emailing/calling does not guarantee a vaccine appointment, but we will do all we can to help make this process easier for you or your loved one.
