This effort requries lots of vaccinators! If you are a licensed healthcare worker, please consider volunteering your time as a vaccinator. We work with various sites across the city and surrounding areas. To vaccinate you must be an RN, dentist, doctor, pharmacist or medical or nursing student.
If you are not able to vaccinate, there is ongoing need for people to facilitate at various sites and/or make phone calls in support of events. More details are available on the Current Projects page.
We are mobilizing to work with the Chicago Department of Public Health's door-to-door canvassing effort. See the current projects page for details as they develop. We continue to reach out to community-based organizations, the city and the county and support their vaccine-related activities. Our involvement includes on-site and remote support such as phone calling, leafleting, scheduling volunteers, and on-site logistics. Bilingual support is available.
Education is a key element of the mass vaccination process in Chicago. The Vaccine Brigade is always looking for volunteers to assist in education initiatives. Healthcare professionals and bilingual volunteers are specifically needed in this area!
