Staff COVID-19 Vaccination

CPS is working to keep employees informed about the district's COVID-19 vaccination program, and where they can locate vaccination sites.

All Chicago Public Schools employees and vendor employees are now eligible to sign up for vaccination appointments throughout the city of Chicago.

As of March 17, all CPS employees and the employees of our largest vendors can get vaccinated at a CPS vaccination center. In addition to providing vaccination opportunities, we want to ensure our community understands the benefits of being vaccinated. Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccination at cdc.gov/coronavirus/vaccines and download some helpful resources below to spread the word about getting a COVID-19 vaccine:

In order to ensure equitable access to vaccinations for staff at CPS vaccination centers, CPS initially followed 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.

Now, all CPS staff are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at a CPS vaccination center or through their doctor, healthcare provider, pharmacy or city-based sites.

To receive a vaccine, CPS staff are 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.

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.

Which CPS Staff Have Been Offered Vaccinations?

CPS committed to providing vaccination opportunities to all employees in a fast and equitable way. Our prioritization framework helped guide vaccination opportunities to the staff that experience the highest risk first. Staff who are 65 or older were given priority within their subgroups. ADA or caretaker accommodations did not impact placement in priority groups.

All staff are now invited to be vaccinated at a CPS vaccination center in addition to their doctor, local pharmacy, and other city and state-based vaccination sites.

If you have questions about where a specific role not listed falls in the prioritization framework, please reach out to vaccines@cps.edu.
