CHICAGO – State Senator Cristina Pacione-Zayas (D-Chicago) will be hosting multiple COVID-19 vaccine clinics throughout February and March to help ensure residents of the 20th district have regular access to vaccines and booster shots.

The most recent pop-up clinic at the 20th district office occurred on Feb. 4 and provided 70 vaccines to community members, with most recipients being children and teens.

Future clinics will take place most Tuesdays through February and March from noon to 5 p.m. at Pacione-Zayas’ district office, located at 3140 W. Montrose Ave. No appointment or insurance is necessary. For those receiving a second dose or booster, a vaccine card with proof of first dose is recommended.

“Vaccine clinics are critical to bringing much-needed vaccines and booster shots to our community, especially younger residents who are back in school,” said Susana González, the vaccine navigator for the 20th district and nurse educator with ASI Home Care. “I encourage everyone to take some time in the next couple months to come out and get vaccinated at the remaining clinics, and spread the word to make sure everyone who wants one, gets one.”FabVax

Sen. Pacione-Zayas’ office is also collecting child-sized N95 or KN95 masks to distribute to students who are back in school. These masks are the most effective against the highly-contagious omicron variant. Residents can make donations to the 20th district office from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays or 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursdays.

The next vaccine and booster clinic is Tuesday, Feb. 15 from noon to 5 p.m.
