    Will county is consistently showing up on these lists.

    The county board approach of ignoring their departmental failures in the hopes the problems will magically go away, seems to have been a bad approach.

    As of Friday, Illinois had vaccinated 3.1 million people. I count those who have gotten one shot as half a person vaccinated. I am also assuming that all the vaccines require two doses. The population of Illinois is 12.8MM. Assume that 80% is 18 or above. US average is 23%. So we have 10.24MM to vaccinate. That means we have 7.14MM to go. Illinois will start receiving a million doses a week this week – up from 800,000. That is 500,000 people vaccinated a week. That means 143,000 doses a day. We had been averaging 10,000 but got up to 135,000 so 143,000 is doable.

    At that rate, every adult in Illinois can be vaccinated by June 27 (ignoring the time between jabs). If 80% of adults want to get vaccinated, they will be done by the end of May. The reality is that public health officials will have to start a huge outreach effort by May 1 encouraging people to get vaccinated.

    As far as the under 18 cohort, there are about 350,000 16 and 17 year olds. They can get Pfizer. We need to start working on them as well. Both Moderna and Pfizer are working to get approval for children as young as 12. Hope that comes soon. Another 700,000.

    The biggest problem is vaccine hesitancy. I think African American numbers are going OK. Not as well as whites. I have yet to meet a 65 year old plus white person who does not want to get vaccinated. Whether they have gotten a jab or have an appointment is the major topic of conversation amongst old farts like me. Vaccination rates among Hispanics is lagging.

    So we will soon be moving from hand wringing about the availability of vaccines to a public health campaign to get people vaccinated. And we need to start implementing the new normal – whatever that is. I plan on wearing a mask – probably for the rest of my life.

    The next issue is vaccinating the world. We have been selfish so far. Time for that to end. Having the US vaccinated while Covid is stewing around the world producing new variants ready to come to what we thought was a safe haven. We need to cooperate with Russia and China. China does not expect to have its population vaccinated until the end of 2022.

    And then we need to figure out how effective and long lasting the vaccines are. Which ones are the best? When do we need another jab?

    **This brings the total Illinois doses to 5,756,795. A total of 4,747,845 vaccines have been administered in Illinois as of last midnight

    1 million vaccines not in peoples arms is not doing anyone any good. Need to pick up the pace. That is a 10 day backlog and with the supply increasing something is very wrong with the state’s distribution plan.


  4. - Sox Fan - Monday, Mar 22, 21 @ 12:50 pm:

    I am a government worker (Cook county) living in the suburbs. I made an appointment for a vaccine at a Walgreens tomorrow. Does anyone know if me bringing my County ID is sufficient to show that I qualify for the vaccine? Thanks


  5. - Responsa - Monday, Mar 22, 21 @ 12:50 pm:

    When I received my second shot on Friday at a pharmacy I was told that the completion of the “project” was being reported both to IDPH and to my personal physician whose name I was asked to provide. I was happy to hear this but a bit surprised. Is this the understanding others have as well? Is this coordination/reporting being done at all vaccination locations? I am just wondering how accurate the vaccination rates really are–since this, after all, is Illinoius. :)


  6. - Dee Lay - Monday, Mar 22, 21 @ 1:03 pm:

    *TooSlowinIL*
    If you go on the IDPH site- they have an inventory of 462,144 in the county breakdowns.

    With a few exceptions (Will County coughcough) most counties have a 5 day or fewer supply on hand. I’d argue a 3-5 day supply is reasonable if not expected. Stuff happens.

    But to your point- I’m a bit confused on the numbers as well.
    462,144 - Total Reported Inventory (County health departments?)
    256,701 - Reported Inventory at Local Health Departments (Village health departments?)
    200,145 - Reported Inventory at Community Partners (Walgreens? CVS Etc?)

    Hopefully someone can help enlighten me.

    When I got vaccinated nobody asked for proof of anything. I had my ID and insurance card out they did not want it and did not look at it. I had to report my vaccine to my doctor nothing was provided to him and I was vaccinated at Sherman Advocate.
    And I cannot believe that they did not ask me to prove my age. Sad. Nobody cards me anymore


  8. - Election worker - Monday, Mar 22, 21 @ 1:57 pm:

    Sox fan-
    I got my first vaccine at Walgreens as a high risk individual and they didn’t ask me for any proof. Or even ID. All they did was ask my name, address and have me check on a form which category of eligibility I was in. So I wouldn’t worry.


  9. - Sox Fan - Monday, Mar 22, 21 @ 2:11 pm:

    Thanks, Election worker. Others are reporting similar experiences.


  10. - Al - Monday, Mar 22, 21 @ 3:32 pm:

    We should stop being Poindexters with regard to the timing of the second booster. Hospital staff and first responders are vaccinated. Give everyone a first shot before boosters. That way we can be pretty much back to normal Memorial day weekend. The number in the hospital and ICUs are too high.
