Stoller seeks answers on Administration’s vaccine rollout

On January 28, State Senator Win Stoller (R-Germantown Hills) joined his 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, Sen. Stoller issued the following statement:

“Our state’s vaccine distribution numbers are shameful. They rank at the bottom compared to every other state in the nation. My colleagues and I want to hear a clear explanation from the Governor on how this failure occurred.

“Nearly half of our COVID-19 deaths come from the residents of long-term care facilities. Yet, only 20 percent of those residents have received their vaccination. From the very beginning of this pandemic, the Governor has decided to go-it-alone when it comes to its management. Our vaccination numbers show that decision was a mistake, and that the Governor’s Administration has failed our residents.”

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.
