CPS has announced that fifteen schools will be offering vaccinations to students and adults aged 12 and over and we need your help to make them a success!
We were the first labor union in the nation to win vaccinations for our students and families, and CPS finally scheduled its first event May 8 at Fenger. Now they’ve scheduled free walk-in vaccine opportunities at fifteen more schools.

We fought hard to win a vaccine plan for our students and their families, and while CPS’ ongoing inability to plan collaboratively has been frustrating, we are eager to get the word out to as many families and neighborhood residents as possible!
We’ve included school addresses and links to flyers in English and Spanish below that you can share with your parents and school communities — a direct benefit of our struggle to win real safety in our reopening agreement.
Help share these flyers with students and parents in your school community! It’s a CPS sponsored event so educators and school staff can share information on work email and share flyers and details directly with students and parents.
Bring students or family members to a vaccine event! Any Chicago resident can walk up for a test, no ID required. Students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Help volunteer at an event to help with set-up, sign-in, event flow and tear-down! If you can volunteer, please click on the button to sign up! Show your CTU pride and wear red to the event!
Remember: students ages 12–17 need a parent or guardian present with them in order to sign permission forms for students to be vaccinated. No ID is necessary to receive a shot. Pfizer shots are available for 12–17 year olds, and second doses will be scheduled. Adults 18+ can get the one dose J&J shot.
Getting students and vulnerable family members vaccinated is a key component in bringing students back to school SAFELY this fall. Join us in connecting this critical safety tool with as many students and family members as we can!
