City Targets Teens and Young Adults with Special COVID-19 Vaccination Events at Barbershops

CHICAGO—The Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) is targeting teens and young adults to get vaccinated against COVID-19 with two special vaccine events at barbershops. Called “Vax & Relax,” free haircuts and/or vouchers will be offered to those who get vaccinated at these events. There will also be live music for entertainment. Youth aged 12 to 18 are eligible to receive the Pfizer vaccine, and are encouraged to get vaccinated to protect themselves and their families from COVID-19.

A parent or guardian must accompany any minor under age 18, and unvaccinated parents and guardians will be encouraged to receive a vaccine as well. Walk-ins are welcome at these events—no pre-registration required.

Schedule for Vax & Relax:

  • Saturday, June 5, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., It’s Official Barbershop, 1256 W 63rdSt
  • Saturday, June 12, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Josephine’s Jet Set Hair Salon, 2542 E 79th St.

All COVID-19 vaccines are offered at no cost to everyone, no insurance or ID required. For information about COVID-19 vaccines in Chicago, visit www.chicago.gov/covidvax.
