Chicago’s Democrat Mayor, Lori Lightfoot, has announced via Twitter that she has contracted the coronavirus despite being “fully” vaccinated, and boosted.
Lightfoot took to Twitter on Tuesday afternoon and insisted that the symptoms she is experiencing are mild and that her vaccinations have helped dull the effects of the virus.
“Earlier today, I tested positive for COVID-19. I am experiencing cold-like symptoms but otherwise feel fine which I credit to being vaccinated and boosted. I will continue to work from home while following the CDC guidelines for isolation<‘ the mayor tweeted.
“This is an urgent reminder for folks to get vaccinated and boosted as it’s the only way to beat this pandemic,” the mayor exclaimed in a follow up Tweet.

Lightfoot’s most recent address on the vaccination came on the black nationalist holiday of Kwanzaa in a video wherein the mayor warned Chicagoans that the “best way” to protect themselves during the holiday is to take the jab.
During the video, Lightfoot lectured about the vaccine, urged people to maintain “COVID-19 safe celebrations” and said vaccination was “best way” to protect people from the virus.
“And that includes 5-11-year-olds, who are now eligible for the Pfizer vaccine,” she added while generously allowing that the fully vaccinated would be allowed to gather “without restrictions.”
Weeks before that, the Mayor warned unvaxed citizens that their “time was up” and they would be barred from entering restaurants, bars, gyms, theaters, and other public places, as she once again lowered the boom of a vax passport system on the city.
Meanwhile, as the mayor busied herself as the city’s vax scold in chief, the Windy City has earned the dubious honor suffering the worst murder rate in a quarter century with one of the most violent years on record.
As 2021 came to a close, Chicago suffered well over 800 murders, the most since 1996.
