Mayor Lori Lightfoot on Monday said the city is considering ways to incentivize residents to get coronavirus vaccines, including potential passes that could lead to preferred seating and admission to events for those who have gotten shots.
The mayor was asked at an unrelated news conference about the city’s plans for creating COVID-19 vaccination passports, a move Chicago public health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady said is under consideration to begin next month.
Lightfoot said the plan is still “a work in progress” but that city officials are looking for ways to give vaccine stragglers incentive to get inoculated from the disease that could include preferred seating and admission to certain events.
“When you get vaccinated, it’s going to be an easier to return to a different life,” Lightfoot said. “I won’t say our normal old life, because I don’t think that’s ever coming back.”
The mayor also encouraged residents between the ages 18-44 to get vaccinated, and noted the Black community is also lagging. “The opportunities for opening up the city increase with the number of people who get vaccinated,” she said.
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our Substack page.
