It’s deadline day for Illinois health care workers and teachers to get at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.
After a two-week delay, at the request of various educational associations and the Illinois Federation of Teachers, the deadline is here.
Governor JB Pritzker’s executive order mandating Covid-19 vaccinations for health workers, school staffers and others is now in effect.
Illinois’ COVID-19 vaccination mandate deadline impacts healthcare workers at hospitals, public or private nursing homes as well as teachers and staff at pre-K 12 schools across the state and personnel and students at higher education institutes.
The requirement requires workers and staffers to have received an initial dose of the COVID-19 vaccine or submit to a regimen of regular testing.
