On January 28, State Senator Jason Plummer (R-Edwardsville) 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, Senator Plummer issued the following statement:
“After months of passing the buck, pointing fingers and failing to lead, the Governor needs to explain why Illinoisans are once again not being prioritized under his Administration. Illinois has fallen to a dismal ranking of 47th in overall vaccine distribution, leaving vulnerable, isolated residents unprotected and in the dark as to why their state government is not stepping up to ensure they have vaccine access. It’s deplorable. Governor Pritzker decided to continue this go-it-alone approach and now he alone must answer for this failure.”
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.
