Pritzker Extending Vaccination Deadline For School Employees, Healthcare Workers

Governor J.B. Pritzker is extending the deadline for school employees and healthcare workers to get their COVID-19 vaccination. Officials with the governor’s office said late last week that the deadline will now be September 19th. Officials say the extension was requested by health and education leaders. The vaccination requirement was announced late last month as an effort to fight the spread of the delta variant.
