    Some older Chicagoans could start getting vaccines as early as next week, top doc says 

    Chicago could begin pivoting toward the next phase in its mass vaccination campaign as early as next week, but the larger timeline will likely stay murky until President-Elect Joe Biden’s administration takes a firm grip over the federal rollout, the city’s top health officials told aldermen on Wednesday. 

    Speaking during a four-hour subject matter hearing hosted by the City Council Committee on Health and Human Relations, Chicago Department of Public Health Comm. Allison Arwady said the city will “likely sometime next week” advise hospitals and other vaccine providers to start vaccinating selected “high-risk” patients over the age of 65 — but only if the hospitals have leftover doses that have gone unclaimed by health care workers, she said.
