Jesse Brown Returns COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic to Main Campus

Updated 7/1/2021 8:48 AM

Jesse Brown VA Medical Center will return its COVID-19 vaccine clinic to its main campus on July 8. All military Veterans, their spouses, caregivers, dependents age 12 and over, widows, and widowers will be able to get the vaccine in the medical center at 820 S. Damen Avenue in Chicago.

In March, Jesse Brown moved the vaccine clinic to an off-campus location in the Illinois Medical District to accommodate more Veteran patients as vaccine availability increased along with the number of people to receive the vaccine from VA through the SAVE LIVES Act. Jesse Brown has now provided more than 41,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines to veterans.


Everyone eligible to get the vaccine from VA can call (312) 569-5801 to make an appointment or visit for more information.
