Mayor Lori Lightfoot Provides Update On Chicago's Coronavirus Vaccine Rollout
"Black and Hispanic Americans are about twice as likely to die from covert 19 is white Americans, yet they have been vaccinated. At much lower rates across the country that in Chicago, about half of the city's vaccinations are for people of color. The mayor of Chicago, of course, is Lori Lightfoot, and she joins us now more like for thanks so much for being with us. Good morning, Scott. A pleasure to be with you early in the vaccine roll out less than 20% of vaccine doses went to Chicago. Once of color. Now, that's half. What did Chicago do? That can make a difference. Can it be done in other places? Well, we work extremely hard to overcome. Vaccine hasn't see in communities of color protect particularly black and like flat necks, and really that hard work began at the very beginning of the pandemic. We were seeing the disproportion impact on communities of color, this horrible virus. We went to work in those communities, which trusted partners. And I think those that hard work over time is starting to bear fruit in the significant off take to go from, you know the low teens. Of uptake in the early days of the vaccine program to now over 50% is remarkable turnaround, and it's really do that the hard work of so many people across our city certainly led by city government, But really, our partners in the neighborhoods deserve the credit because they recognize this life saving Vaccine has to go to those people that are most in need. And in our city That means communities of color. But what's the messaging in this Because, of course, you know, a lot of the hesitancy is historic, based on things that, obviously well, what's the message Inky were able to convince you there's there's no secret sauce, and it's really ah lot of diligence, one on one conversation and getting people who are trusted. Community partners in those neighborhoods who recognizable literally. We've gone door to door for months now to get people educated. Provide them with information really do a lot of myth busting and you've just got a Put in the hard work to overcome their fears. And I think as people have seen people that they recognize whether it's a mayor of color as I am or their neighbors who are getting the vaccine without adverse consequences. It's bringing people who are really standing on the sidelines into the field of play and saying, all right I'll do this. I think it's safe. Have to ask you Mayor Lightfoot, a zoo, you know. Chicago Tribune reported this week that the city spent more than $280 million nearly 60% of the discretionary spending money it got under the Caress Coronavirus relief package. On CPD, the Chicago police Department. Is that true? And what do you say? OK, I'm going to quote Alderman less Fatah. The first ward, who says that money should have been sent on spent on housing assistance in small businesses, not the police. Well, we spent Tens of millions of dollars on a significant number of community service and social service programs. As you know, Scott when the tears package Came from Congress. It came through specific line items and grants for programs like homelessness, community health, um, violence prevention and other things. Those were designated dollars where there was really no flexibility whatsoever and how that money was spent, and we spent it accordingly. There were some money, however, that the federal government gave to cities like Chicago to address the unprecedented need to respond to covert 19. And yes, we spent money on a range of first responder activities because they were at the front lines in many instances, particularly in the early days of our covert 19 response. So the criticism that somehow we should have taken a pass on free money from the federal government that came to address unprecedented and unbudgeted needs that were in our city just doesn't make any sense. I make no apologies for the fact that we took advantage of the opportunities that the federal gave government gave us rather than passing on. Was expensive to our taxpayers, so that the the choices do we actually take advantage of the re rope the money that has given us two by the federal government and save Burden on our taxpayers, or do we just pass along the cost to the taxpayers? I understand with our taxpayers every single day and do everything that I can to save them from any further burden, And that's exactly what we did in Chicago. Thanks so much my pleasure.
