    I love the improvement. If we are going to get to 1M vaccines a day, I believe Illinois is going to have to have more than 20,000 shots


  2. - Smalls - Wednesday, Jan 20, 21 @ 4:24 pm:

    Per the CDC, Illinois is #37 in vaccines administered per 100,000 doses. This is turning into a dismal failure. It needs to be fixed now. We have had plenty of time to prepare for administering the vaccines, unlike some of the early pandemic challenges. This is unacceptable and needs to be resolved immediately, before the new variants begin spreading in the next 4-8 weeks. That is why the timing is so critical.
