Is there any truth to the rumor that advertising falls under the “media” category for vaccine phase 1c?

Found this definition online ... “Media is the communication outlets or tools used to store and deliver information or data. The term refers to components of the mass media communications industry, such as print media, publishing, the news media, photography, cinema, broadcasting (radio and television), digital media, and advertising.”

But not sure if that’s in line with the Mayor as I don’t see advertising listed in their definition.

Although, I do think people going on shoots might already be eligible as production crews were deemed essential in Chicago at one point.

Bottom line, hard to tell.


Here ...


The other category to shoot for in 1C is Communications


Yes it does. I’ve had some coworkers able to get appointments


I’ve had coworkers get vaccinated and I’ve been told that they do not really confirm anything about where you work.
