Some at-risk older citizens in Chicago could start getting vaccines next week, city’s public health commissioner says

Small numbers of at-risk older Chicagoans could start getting COVID-19 vaccines as soon as next week, the city’s health commissioner said Wednesday. While the city is still focused on vaccinating front-line health care workers in the first phase of the vaccine distribution, Dr. Allison Arwady said hospitals might be allowed to start reaching out themselves next week to at-risk patients age 65 and older.
