Chicago‘s public health commissioner doesn’t expect to have enough COVID-19 vaccines for the entire public right away.  Dr. Allison Arwady told CNN yesterday that the city will start by providing vaccines for health care workers and people in long-term care facilities at the start. 

Arwady also recommends that Chicagoans cancel a traditional Thanksgiving.  Mayor Lightfoot echoed Arwady at an unrelated news conference, saying a mass-produced vaccine won’t be available until sometime deep into next year.
