Now seems that 109,000 people in Illinois will be able to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in the first round of immunizations.
The state was told in the past day that the initial batch won’t have to be split to allow for the second shot that is needed. Governor JB Pritzker says that’s good news and it means more health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities will be able to be vaccinated quickly. And it won’t matter if you live in a big city or a rural area.
Those 109,000 doses of vaccines are expected to be in Illinois between December 13th and 19th.
