Staff across UChicago Medicine are pulling together to meet the unprecedented demands caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Maintaining the physical, financial and emotional well-being of our staff — both on and off-campus — as we work together to care for our patients and community is our top priority.

Employee Vaccination 

Vaccine distribution is a large-scale national effort. Healthcare personnel, particularly those with direct patient care roles, were among the first to have the vaccine offered to them. UChicago Medicine employees who haven't been vaccinated yet are still able to get a free vaccine through our employee program.
