The Illinois Department of Public Health says the majority of current COVID-19 hospitalizations are people who haven’t been vaccinated. Dr. Ngozi Ezike spoke yesterday at a vaccination site in Forest Park, encouraging people to get the vaccine. Ezike promoted the effectiveness of all three available vaccines. Only 72 of the more than two-point-five-million Illinoisans vaccinated have been hospitalized with COVID-19. Vaccinations are going to be available to the general public starting Monday.
