May 13 clinic will follow new guidance from the CDC, which has made ages 12+ eligible for the Pfizer vaccine with parental consent.

Parkland College and Walgreens will be partnering to offer vaccinations on Thursday, May 13, and Thursday, May 20, from 3 p.m.-7 p.m. as part of a new partnership that will bring on-site vaccination to the college's campus and surrounding community.

As part of Illinois' vaccination plan, individuals ages 12 and up are currently eligible to receive a Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. Eligible community members interested in being vaccinated are invited to make an appointment using the following QR code or walk-up during appointment times.

Walgreens is utilizing a tent in the M-4 parking lot to administer vaccinations. Future vaccine clinic dates will be announced in the coming weeks. Individuals who receive their first dose here but are unable to participate in a follow-up event are still eligible to receive their second dose at any Walgreens across the nation.
