An unvaccinated member of the Oak Park Board of Health no longer serves on the committee

Wynne Lacey’s position on the Oak Park Board of Health became a source of controversy last winter because of her beliefs about vaccinations. Her decision not to get vaccinated against COVID-19, despite being eligible, and her comparisons of mitigation measures to punishments have drawn much criticism, with many calling for her to leave the volunteer commission.

Lacey, it seems, has since done so.

In an email sent April 23 to the health staff liaison board, Lacy said he would not be participating in future committee meetings. The Wednesday Journal obtained the email through the Freedom of Information Act.
