Illinois and states across the country are getting ready to receive COVID virus vaccine and officers are sharing a lot of information about who should get them
Dr. Ngozi Ezike said that people who have had COVID virus within the last 90 days should hold back and let others get the vaccine because we think within that 90 days, you can’t get COVID again. We can’t say for sure.
She then explained that if it’s been over ninety days, then it’d be acceptable to induce the vaccine at that point, according to QuadCities.
Earlier in the week, Illinois officers said the primary cargo of 109,000 doses of the vaccine might arrive as early as Sunday.
“I think more people than not are interested in getting this vaccine and the job of the public health department, the government, is to ensure that everyone has the adequate information with which to make the best choice for themselves and their families,” said Gov. J.B. Pritzker.
The first vaccinations are dedicated to hospitals and health care staff within the 50 counties with the highest death rates per capita within the state.
The state of Illinois is reporting 11,101 new confirmed cases today.
