Chicago Public Schools school staff and other employees in frontline essential roles are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. In order to ensure equitable access to vaccinations for staff, CPS has developed a prioritization system based on the level of exposure to others and ability to maintain mitigation measures, as well as the amount of time the specific role has been serving in-person during the closure.
CPS employees may schedule a vaccination appointment through your doctor, healthcare provider, or pharmacy. Please note it may take weeks to schedule an appointment due to limited vaccine supplies.
We thank our partners at the Chicago Department of Public Health and other local health care providers for assisting the district in our critical vaccination efforts.
As of February 22, 2021 CPS has offered vaccination opportunities to over 14,000 employees
All CPS staff are now eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through their doctor, healthcare provider, pharmacy or city-based sites.
Beginning in late February 2021, staff will also be able to receive a COVID-19 vaccination at CPS vaccination centers once we begin receiving vaccine doses from the federal government. School-based staff will be prioritized first for vaccinations, and within their specific roles, and ability to social distance while at work. The district will begin notifying staff in phases beginning January 2021. Please monitor your CPS email for additional updates.
To receive a vaccine, CPS staff may be asked to bring one of the following items to your appointment as proof of eligibility: work-related staff identification such as CPS ID badge, professional license number or certificate, CPS pay stub or insurance card.
