On January 28, State Senator Terri Bryant (R-Murphysboro) joined her Senate Republican colleagues to issue a letter to Governor J.B. Pritkzer asking for the Administration to answer for failures with the ongoing rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Currently, Illinois ranks 47th in overall vaccine distribution.
After submitting the letter to the Governor, Senator Bryant issued the following statement:
“Illinois currently ranks 47th in overall vaccine distribution, making our question simple. Why? Why is the Administration once again failing to lead during this crisis? The Governor has chosen to act unilaterally in all decisions regarding the response to the pandemic and now, after months of suffering, we have a path forward to protect our vulnerable residents. Yet, vaccines are not being distributed. It is unacceptable. The Governor needs to stop the blame game and provide real answers as to why Illinoisans do not have access to a vaccine.”
Below is a copy of the letter sent to the Governor asking for an explanation as to why Illinois is among the worst states in vaccine rollout rankings.
