This Friday will be 'Vaccination Awareness Day' in Chicago.

So no school on Fridays, two hours of paid leave for workers, plus $100 gift cards ($50 for each dose) for those vaccinated at public health programs or clinics.

The "Vaccination Awareness Day" is happening to increase vaccination rates mainly among children aged 5 to 11. To get citizens fully vaccinated till Christmas or Kwanzaa, they have to get their first shots this weekend.

Because the COVID cases are spiking up this holiday season, health officials urge parents to vaccinate their kids and themselves.

You can visit to find vaccination centers on https://www.chicago.gov/city/en/sites/covid19-vaccine/home/for-youth.html

The Chicago Public Schools also stated in a tweet about it.

At a City Hall news conference, Chicago Public Health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady said, "If we can get a lot of students vaccinated now, if we can get a lot of adults vaccinated and boosted ahead of the holidays, right now is the time to do that, We wait a month, we wait two months ā€” we could be in the middle of a larger surge."
