CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Chicago Department of Public Health is offering monkeypox and COVID-19 vaccines at two City College locations this weekend.
Two CDPH clinics will offer the shots at Richard J. Daley College, 7500 S. Pulaski, and Wilbur Wright College, 4300 N. Narangassett, on Saturday, August 27 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Walk-ins will be accepted for anyone over the age of 6 months seeking a COVID-19 vaccine. Appointments are required for the monkeypox (MPV) vaccine.

- Anyone who has had close contact (for example, household members with close physical contact or intimate partners) with someone diagnosed with MPV regardless of sex, gender, or sexual orientation.
- Sexually active bisexual, gay and other men who have sex with men, and transgender persons
