BOMA/Chicago Teams with Governor Pritzker, Mayor Lightfoot to Launch Vaccination Sites in Office Buildings
To further expand convenient opportunities for Illinoisans to get vaccinated, BOMA/Chicago teamed with Governor JB Pritzker and Mayor Lori Lightfoot to launch a new program this week that offers building workers and office staff a chance to get their vaccination shot at work.
“With enhanced air quality and ventilation, advanced cleanliness procedures, and reconfigurations, our buildings have been prepared to welcome tenants back to the office for over a year,” said Farzin Parang, BOMA/Chicago Executive Director. “We are proud to contribute to the vaccination effort to ensure a safe return to downtown and help revitalize our economy.”
The effort launches with commercial office building sites in Chicago, Schaumburg and Rockford. Buildings will host vaccination sites to encourage front desk staff, custodial workers, security, building engineers and other employees, along with building tenants, to sign up for an appointment in advance. Outreach will be conducted to neighboring buildings as well. The clinics will also take walk-ins.
Beginning in mid-May, the following buildings will be included in the first wave of the program:
- Merchandise Mart, 222 West Merchandise Mart Plaza, Chicago
- Harris Bank Building, 115 S. LaSalle Street, Chicago
- 540 W. Madison Street, Chicago
- Equitable Building, 401 N. Michigan Avenue, Chicago
- 150 N. Riverside Plaza, Chicago
- 311 South Wacker (Walgreens at 250 S Wacker Dr), Chicago
- Wrigley Building, 400-410 North Michigan Avenue (Walgreens at 410 N Michigan Ave), Chicago
- 200 East Randolph, Chicago
- 110 N Wacker Drive, Chicago
- 300 S Riverside Plaza, Chicago
- 500 West Monroe, Chicago
- 308 W. State Street, Rockford
- 1111 S. Alpine Road, Rockford
- 1061 American Lane, Schaumburg
Dates and times will be promoted in advance, which have been strategically chosen around shift changes to allow as many workers to take advantage of this opportunity as possible.
