WBEZ looked at the larger picture and found disagreement between national and local officials.
McHenry County figured into the story:
ICE officials said county health departments were responsible for vaccinating detainees. The sheriff’s offices in Kankakee and Pulaski counties did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
When the McHenry County Health Department responded to questions, the responsibility for vaccinating this population was shifted to the feds.
“We were informed by the corrections facility medical contractors that ICE would be providing the vaccine for the detainees and that they, the medical contractors in the corrections facility, would administer,” spokeswoman Lindsey Salvatelli said.
