Starting Wednesday, COVID-19 vaccines will be available from two nearby mass vaccination sites without an appointment through Saturday, April 24, according to Cook County Health (CCH).
Walk-in vaccination will be available at the Tinley Park Convention Center, 18451 Convention Center Drive, for anyone 18 and older. The site delivers the Moderna vaccine.
Walk-ins will also be welcome at the Matteson Community vaccination site at 4647 Promenade Way for anyone 16 and older. The site provides the Pfizer vaccine.
Anyone wishing to receive a shot should bring a photo ID. Both facilities are open 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. for walk-ins.
"The distribution of COVID-19 vaccination will be done in a phased approach as vaccine supply is available and using guidance from local, state and national public health authorities," according to the CCH website.
The pilot project is being conducted in collaboration with the Cook County Department of Public Health.
Next week, CCH will pilot evening walk-in hours at some of its sites to accommodate workers unable to get to a daytime appointment. More details to follow.
