"AFSCME stands as one. Let’s vaccinate as one."

Our brother Randy Hellmann—a longtime Illinois AFSCME local union president, Council 31 executive board member and staff representative—died of COVID-19. His final wish, expressed to his best friend, was that his fellow union members get vaccinated so no one has to go through what he did.

Many AFSCME members will have the chance to be vaccinated at work. For more information on COVID-19 vaccine eligibility, go to To find a COVID-19 vaccine provider near you, visit the website for vaccination locations.
