Anyone who wants a shot during Phase 1C will be able to get one in April or May, Dr. Allison Arwady said.
CHICAGO — The city will move into the next phase of vaccinations, 1C, on March 29, making many more people eligible for the shots.
The city released details Wednesday on who will be eligible for a vaccine starting March 29 — and the list includes people with underlying conditions, restaurant workers and hairdressers. Dr. Allison Arwady, head of the Chicago Department of Public, said during a Wednesday news conference.
Shots will not be available for everyone in 1C starting March 29. But the federal government will increase its supply of doses to Chicago, and anyone who wants a shot during Phase 1C will be able to get one in April or May, Arwady said.
