After 2 months, staff vaccinations at Illinois veterans’ homes still lag
Nearly two months after Illinois began vaccinating residents and staff at long-term care facilities, many employees remain unvaccinated at the state’s veterans’ homes, which have seen 77 deaths.
In late December, the Illinois Department of Veterans’ Affairs reported that 74 percent of all veterans’ home residents had been vaccinated for COVID-19. At the same time, just 40 percent of staff had been vaccinated. The agency provided a facility-by-facility summary of the percentage of residents and staff that had received doses.
