Covid 19 Vaccine Distribution Arrives In Chicago

Chicago Vaccines by Aayu Clinics is preparing for the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine amongst Chicago’s non-vulnerable population.

The vaccine is expected to be distributed starting early or mid-March. Chicago Vaccines is spearheaded by Dr. Abhijit Shinde, medical director and local entrepreneur who says he is excited and honored to be able to help the Chicago community that he loves so much. Chicago Vaccines says that those who are eligible should continue to monitor the website to get updated when it goes live.

Chicago Vaccines is administering the vaccine by appointment only based on local eligibility guidelines. The vaccine is available at no cost to those with insurance or through a federal program for the uninsured. Aayu Clinics is partnering with several local state and federal programs to help administer the COVID-19 vaccine to eligible populations. Appointments will be available as they receive vaccines from these programs. Chicago Vaccines is asking those eligible to schedule their first and second doses of the vaccine online and to check back for updates on additional locations as they become available.

Chicago Vaccines is advocating for the safety and efficacy of the vaccines. They say that mRNA vaccines train the body to trigger an immune response to the disease and they don't affect or interact with the person’s DNA in any way. The vaccine development process is informed by decades of research and large-scale clinical trials with thousands of participants. After the two required doses, the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines have a 94% to 95% efficacy rate of protection against COVID-19. To learn more about the vaccine and to have all of their questions answered, readers can visit the company’s website.

Chicago Vaccines also want to assure those who are worried about side effects from the vaccine that side effects actually confirm that the vaccine is actually working with the immune system. This may include pain at the injection site, tiredness, headache, muscle, and joint pain or chills, and a slight fever. The company reiterates that the vaccine does not contain the virus, so it cannot give recipients COVID-19.

When asked about the company’s vaccine distribution preparedness, a spokesperson for the company says, “We've administered hundreds of thousands of COVID-19 tests to date. We have decades of experience safely administering vaccines, such as those for flu, shingles, pneumonia, and more. We offer easy and convenient online scheduling options so you can schedule both required doses at the same time and we offer two locations to utilize in Chicago for your convenience. We will be adding additional locations as time goes by. When you get a vaccine with Chicago Vaccines, you are receiving the vaccine in the safest and easiest way possible. Visit our website and book your shot online to be the first to get your vaccine when we go live.”
