More Than 130 Chicago City Workers File Lawsuit Against COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate

By Christopher Burroughs

More than 130 Chicago city workers, consisting of firefighters, health care workers, and other first responders, filed a lawsuit against the city’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate, arguing the order is unconstitutional.

The lawsuit was filed in Chicago’s federal court, pushing back against Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s mandate that health care workers and other state employees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

The legal move also contrasts the order by Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot that required all city workers to report their vaccination status earlier in October. The lawsuit claimed the state and city mandates are government overreach and are, as a result, “null and void.”
