Every member of the Chicago Police Department must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 by October 15, 2021 as a condition of employment unless they have an approved medical or religious exemption. As City of Chicago employees, all members must submit their vaccination status by October 15 to the city’s vaccination portal. If you’re not fully vaccinated by October 15 or waiting for a response to a submitted exemption request, you must undergo COVID-19 testing twice a week with tests separated between 3 to 4 days apart. You must obtain those tests on your own time at your own expense and report the results to the city. The test option is only available until December 31st. Members of this department who refuse to comply with the requirements of the mandate may be subject to disciplinary up to and including separation.

Supervisors of other Chicago departments also described the status of their employees.
