Video: Providing Access to COVID-19 Vaccines in Chicago Communities

Access Community Health Network worked with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois to provide COVID-19 vaccines at the Blue Door Neighborhood CentersSM in Chicago's South Lawndale and Morgan Park communities. The health network's clinicians administered the shots to their patients and community members at the Blue Door centers, which provide access to community resources and a variety of classes and workshops supporting health and wellness.  

"Getting vaccinated meant a lot to me because of my health issues," Anita Crespo said after getting a shot in South Lawndale. "And I want to make sure that I advocate to everyone how important this is for our community."
