UPDATED LOCATIONS: Autism-Friendly Covid Vaccination Sites in Chicagoland


COVID-19 vaccinations are helping us beat the pandemic, but we know that the vaccination process can be stressful for some individuals with autism. Now that vaccines are available for ages 12 and up, it’s even more important to help alleviate any anxieties for young people and adults with an autism spectrum disorder.

The Illinois Autism Partnership of Easterseals serving Chicagoland and Greater Rockford is excited to announce autism-friendly vaccine sites in the Chicagoland area! These sites have worked in collaboration with Illinois Autism Partnership (IAP) to include accommodations such  as limited-to-no wait times, visual supports, social stories, schedules, an available quiet area, and a multitude of other “autism-friendly” accommodations to make the COVID-19 vaccination process as smooth as possible for your child or loved one. All sites accept walk-ins or can be contacted directly to make an appointment.

“We want to make sure that everyone who has decided to get their child or loved one vaccinated has access to autism-friendly vaccination sites, if they need them. We are all in this together!” says Sarah Smith, IAP’s Manager of Training.

Check out an IAP Social Story to help explain the COVID-19 vaccination process to those with autism.
