CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – MAY 18: Abraham Arellano gets a COVID-19 vaccine at a mobile clinic being run by Humboldt Park Health on May 18, 2021 in Chicago, Illinois. The clinic partnered with two neighborhood restaurants. West Town Bakery and Roots Handmade Pizza, which closed their businesses for the day and used the space to help get their employees and neighborhood residents vaccinated. The restaurant group that owns the two restaurants have mandated that all its employees be vaccinated by mid-July, with few exceptions. They are providing incentives and paid time off for employees to help make this happen. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)
