Chicago Announcements June 25, 2021

The Chicago Department of Public Health announced plans on Wednesday to close some city-run vaccination sites as officials shift toward “hyperlocal distribution,” according to a news release from the department. The United Center vaccination site is set to close Thursday, and a vaccination site at Malcolm X College is scheduled to reopen June 28. The Malcolm X site will be open from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. While the drive-thru site at Chicago State University closed Saturday, the site is still taking walk-up appointments, according to the news release. The Chicago State walk-up sit is scheduled to close July 3. Additionally, the city’s vaccination sites at Kennedy King College, Richard J. Daley College and Wilbur Wright College are set to administer first doses of the Pfizer vaccine through July 3 before closing July 24.

Matthew DeLeon will retire as secretary of the Cook County Board of Commissioners and Forest Preserve District Board on July 31, he announced on Wednesday. DeLeon has served as secretary to the board since 2007, and he previously spent 13 years working at the county's Bureau of Administration. He will remain in the unpaid position of Cook County Historian.
